Agree, I'd see the following people good spokesmen for bitcoin:
  • GAVIN ANDRESEN
    JON MATONIS
    JERRY BRITO
    a professor
    and also BRUCE WAGNER
(and there may be other I dont know)
They should step up even more now and clarify what bitcoin nis about and what is not.

Slight correction... Fox Business. Rather different animals.

Stossel is known for being a detail geek, but blog posts are limited in space and time.  I'm sure he has a better understanding of the details than he wrote.

"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."

BitCoin is the future of a single worldwide currency. It seems like God sent it.

I just got interviewed by BBC World Service Radio.  No link or idea where/when it will be/was broadcast.

If anyone can find a link, that would be great.

His record so far is pretty poor.

"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.

Many bitcoiners may be hackers, but they are not vandals.

I am also trying to be a responsible spokesperson for bitcoin. I will be presenting at a prestigious business school in August and I am very aware of the importance of words. As eluded to above, bitcoin will be delivered to the masses as a story. We can shape that story now, but perhaps not later. Do you want bitcoin known as a convenient, private way to buy and sell on the Internet, or as anonymous drug money for terrorist?

The end of sterling?

What do alpaca socks, poker chips and pet food have in common? Answer: they can all be purchased with Bitcoin, a monetary unit within a digital economy that has no cash, cards, vaults, banks or governments. The premise is simple: after acquiring Bitcoins either through exchange sites, or by helping out the network, users are able to exchange Bitcoins, which then can be spent on goods or services, or saved up within a virtual piggybank.

Actually, bitcoin should be known for neither. Bitcoin is a nonpolitical decentralized cryptocurrency with user-determined anonymity and transaction irreversibility. Most people are happy transacting on the Internet with VISA/MC/AMEX when it comes to plane tickets, hotels, etc. Terrorists and drug dealers already use $100 bills but that is not the fault of the innocent $100 bill.

I believe that, in the media, bitcoin needs to be positioned as a way to restore financial privacy to the individual:

1. Secrecy does not equal concealment, but rather secrecy equals privacy;
2. Large-scale private value transfer should not be impeded across national boundaries (money laundering is a pejorative term);
3. Freedom from confiscation and tax levies;
4. Freedom from money being used to track identity;
5. Protection from the depreciating nation-State political currencies subject to constant debasement.

Can a news outlet quote you on that?  Shocked

BTW Joe Rogan mentioned Silk Road and Bitcoin in his latest podcast or so I heard on twitter, listening to it now to find out and will report after.

Why not copy what the FED does when they defend their secrecy! Call it independence!!

Bitcoin gives the consumer back the independence from big banks and large fees!
