Alex Jones has discovered Bitcoin.  Comments are much more positive than I would have expected.

Oh, that's a lot better than I expected from the title.

I thought it was going to be "No one hired me in a day, Bitcoins are a scam."

Congrats on getting a job that pays solid money. I think you're part of the growing group that leads us to a great place.

Can you say if the job is bitcoin related?

The project which I was hired for is unrelated to bitcoin. It's actually an open source logic gate simulator. You can download the source here:

bit harsh on online poker players. are they that bad?

The most immediate risk, though, seems to be that Bitcoins will facilitate transactions for criminals, online poker players, tax-evaders, pornographers, drug dealers, and other unsavory types tired of carrying around a Vermeer.

The only thing unsavory about me is my bellybutton smut, which is decidedly sweet.

Judging by tweets the Quora answer mentioned in the other thread (http://www.quora.com/Bitcoin/Is-the-cryptocurrency-Bitcoin-a-good-idea) was read by much bigger part of the tech savy population then all the other recent articles together.  This is too bad because it is a very emotional piece and one that calls bitcoin a scam to enrich early adopters.  This is something that can stick for a long time and you'll not crush it by rationally refuting his points.

Here's an interesting one:

     The Information Policy Case For Flat Tax And Basic Income
     http://falkvinge.net/2011/05/19/the-information-policy-case-for-flat-tax-and-basic-income/

Focuses on bitcoin, and discusses rethinking taxes and welfare in a cryptocurrency world.

Another slashdot, another mass of idiots crying about deflation and how it's not technically sound even though they still don't get how it works.

EDIT: Oh sorry, was already posted.

That's really interesting, indeed. What he predicts is still unethical and bad for the economy, but definitely much less worse than what we have nowadays. Let's hope that's the path governments choose to take, instead of just stupid brute repression à la war on drugs.
