Seems Richard Stallman is not following bitcoin.
He makes a good point though. It isn't anonymous, because exchanges can track you, and using it through Tor is annoying.

plus Tor isn't fool-proof anonymous

Suren Tur, one of the developers of youhavedownloaded.com (which lists any torrents that it was able to identify as being downloaded from your IP address), was recently interviewed by privacy advocate (and bitcoiner) rasengan. Suren resopnded with some very upbeat words about Bitcoin:

Quote
What are your thoughts on bitcoins?

There are two aspects. Scientifically, it’s a very neat algorithm. Kudos to the inventor – the guy (or team) is brilliant. Socially – it’s another great thing. It’s a new, perfect gold. If some big social network (hmm, who might that be?) or a big social network game manufacturer (hmm, and who might that be?) started using bitcoins as in-game currency…Wow. It would create initial demand. It’s hard to predict the outcome. But it will be outrageous for sure. It’s a distributed and corruption-free Federal Reserve. Governments will need new underwear. A lot of new underwear. It seems like the inventors realize where it fits pretty well. The creator has been hiding for a reason. If I were in his shoes, I’d be hiding too

SIG_FUNGIBLE

... luv it   Cheesy

Tip: if bitcoin does not do this or something similar then the alt-coin (FunCoin) that does SIG_FUNGIBLE, (blind signing) and merged-mining, will be 'THE ONE' ....

Who is he?

RMS?  He's the guy who invented root-mean-square, right?

"The powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent meetings and conferences. The apex of the systems was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world's central banks which were themselves private corporations. Each central bank...sought to dominate its government by its ability to control Treasury loans, to manipulate foreign exchanges, to influence the level of economic activity in the country, and to influence cooperative politicians by subsequent economic rewards in the business world."

If one wishes to learn about RMS a good place to start is http://www.gnu.org/gnu/gnu.html as it covers the history of the GNU project and Free Software. Another good site is the FSF http://www.fsf.org/

Bitcoin Media: The Brave New World of Mobile Payment

"The recent MobileMoneyAfrica Summit showed impressively just how far ahead Africa is compared to the developed world when it comes to mobile payment. Of necessity, of course: Mobile phones are ubiquitous there, but only a minority of Africans hold a bank account. There are already serious efforts under way to create a truly cashless society. Very predictably, many western companies are rushing in to partake in this market. Most successful so far is Vodafone’s implementation, called M-Pesa."

While the likes of Square, PayPal, Mobile Network Operators and others might think they can circumvent the current bank and payments infrastructure with the 'cloud' or IP networks, the reality is that the need for auditability, security and cross-border interoperability means that complete circumvention of the banking system isn't going to happen in the next few years.

Movenbank, Simple, PayPal, Square, Dwolla, BitCoin and others are working at disrupting not the networks or infrastructure, but the friction in the system.

I was at a banking conference in London on Tuesday and heard the guy from Movenbank speak, actually for a "bank" they're quite good, you can use your Facebook profile to open an account with them.

There was also a Japanese banker (Mitsubishi bank spinoff) where new accounts are created by using mobiles to snap pics of ID's n stuff for the needed KYC.

Then there was a boring French banker that was like "we're banks, people NEED us, we'll be around for some time so we're not changing". Talk about conservative.

While many argue correctly that the new players sit on top of existing infrastructure to build their businesses, what they neglect to address is that we probably only need 30-50% of the players in the system right now to provide that vital infrastructure. The rest are superfluous.

these new players are us; the early adopters.

Bitcoin Media: Juice Rap News joins Bitcoin’s struggle

"Juice Rap News relies heavily on viewer support and is fortunate to receive donations from people all around the world – it helps us to remain completely independent.

Most donations, however, come to us via PayPal (booo), and since the illegal banking blockade on WikiLeaks, in which PayPal still participates, we have become more and more uncomfortable with this situation. Over the past year we have also been receiving regular and sometimes rather insistent emails asking why on earth we were not accepting Bitcoin donations. (“Do you accept them?! If not, will you?” – is one of the latest)."

someone mentioned that while it is seemingly good that they accept donations it would be more preferable if some of these companies or organizations actually invested in the Bitcoin community itself.
