"Bitcoin had been transformed from an anarachistic challenge to the financial status quo, to the crypto spawn of Satan, fuelled by cut-throat greed and delusions of avarice." - MatTheCat
"these people don't seem to want to stop till Bitcoin is completely destroyed and left like an old cum rag in the corner of the room." - ShroomsKit
The Bitcoin software, network, and concept is called "Bitcoin" with a capitalized "B". Bitcoin currency units are called "bitcoins" with a lowercase "b" -- this is often abbreviated BTC.

http://www.golem.de/1105/83829.html

The article is a copy from:

http://www.handelsblatt.com/technologie/it-tk/it-internet/digitale-schatten-waehrung-wertet-massiv-auf/4234332.html?p4234332=1

Albeit both being notable German sources (for IT news and economy respectively), the article is not very in-depth and contains some of the usual inaccuracies (e.g. no transaction costs) and it also states a bit misleadingly, that currently there has to be invested more energy cost than the mined bitcoins will be worth later on.

The comments contain some of the usual bubble-talk Cheesy

"...and it's got more mainstream appeal than Bitcoin."

Maybe, Techcrunch-author-whose-name-I-didn't-look-at, but you're comparing something that doesn't exist yet to something that already has an economy equivalent to 50 million US dollars and showing few signs of weakness. This is in spite of, rather than because of, bitcoin being a so-called techie niche.

It reads like an advertisment, not an independent article.  Still, if this "new" micropayments system does have that kind of appeal, they would do well to start accepting Bitcoin as their in system currency before someone copies their model and releases it as an open source project.

"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."

- Carroll Quigley, CFR member, mentor to Bill Clinton, from 'Tragedy And Hope'

This appears to be a translation of an article that was probably originally in German. I was going to post a Google translation, but then I found the exact same article in English here: http://tech-news-buzz.blogspot.com/2011/05/bitcoin-currency-of-cia-and-hacker.html

For shame, "tech-news-buzz".
If you're going to rip off a foreign article, at least proofread the translation output.

I'm not sure a student newspaper can be considered a "notable" press hit, but: http://www.nouse.co.uk/2011/06/01/the-end-of-sterling/

Silk Road scare mongering.   I know Silk Road has a lot of support here, but it does not really require bitcoin - it could work with cash in the same manner and be even more secure.

I hope you're not referring to me there.

Buying drugs through the mail is nothing new. I am unconvinced though that mailing cash payments is more secure than making payments with Bitcoin. Off topic though. Pretty sure we have other threads for that.

Um, no it wouldn't. Not at all. There is no way their feedback system would work without bitcoin proving that somebody actually made a purchase on the website, proving that money was actually sent.

This is NOTHING compared to the hoopla that will happen when securities betting on stocks, bonds, and commodities starts up using bitcoin and a TOR hidden service. The amount of dollars that will chase anonymous securities betting will make the drug money look like pocket change.

flattr update:
flattr is a new micropayment system that currently only supports Euros.
I sent them one of my bitcoin fanboy letters asking if they take bitcoin.  The response I received said "We love bitcoin too! ... if we add more currencies bitcoin will be at the top of our list".

I think that's big! If flatter adopts bitcoin, it's rally time.
