This just went up on Giz.  Not exactly positive, but press, none the less.

Finally an article that's pretty accurate and not hyperbolic.

I was gonna post the NPR story as well. I think by the time Gavin speaks at the CIA meeting BTC will be in the headlines. I'm talking big propaganda station, NBC, FOX, CNN, BBC

If this is true, then Callooh! Callay! WE'RE HERE TO STAY!

EDIT: I think this may just have been parsing of This Week in Startups.  I'm not sure whether the author of this article had additional data.

Seems that slashdotters are getting pretty irritated with the constant barrage of bitcoin news.

Bitcoin, Digital Currency of the Future?

That which is falling should also be pushed.

Same in Hacker News. There's alway a couple of oddballs who think bitcoin is the stupidest idea they ever heard.

Slashdotters are irritated with anything that doesn't:

1) Reaffirm their own narrow worldview.
2) Give at least one of them a chance to receive backpatting from the rest of the monoculture by posting a dry, long-winded explanation of the topic at hand.

Personally, I'm irritated with seeing this baseless story repeated around the web. It's an account of a random IRC conversation that may or may not have happened. Laughable.

I think this is a highly suspicious story. Can you even get a warrant based on nothing more than electricity use? I could see starting an investigation, but kicking in the doors with no evidence of a crime seems like a stretch.

As far as I can see the initial bitcoin stories were welcome there - it was something new and interesting. Now they have heard enough and the recent submissions are just boring.   Those of them who are really interested are already here in this forum I guess.

And to be fair.. most of the bitcoin 'stories' coming out are just rehashes of things people have heard a bunch of times.

A side effect of using a currency that is functionally anonymous.

"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."

Makes it harder to debunk.

I read a site every day, whatreallyhappened.com, and bitcoin has now appeared there on May 25:
http://whatreallyhappened.com/content/what-bitcoin

May 8:
http://whatreallyhappened.com/content/bitcoin-peer-peer-currencies-eliminate-banks

and May 6:
http://whatreallyhappened.com/content/peer-peer-currency-takes-banks-out-picture-video

India and China haven't woken up to bitcoin. This is true for most people on the planet. But they will, oh yes, they will.

I think that "Sierra Leone" was meant to be "Second Life".
