http://www.reddit.com/r/IAmA/comments/hpz12/as_requested_i_trade_bitcoins_on_a_regular_basis/

That's how I discovered Bitcoin.  It hit the front page of Reddit(srs biznizz) when I checked it out.

Silk Road (and, the story seems to imply, bitcoins) attracts official attention:

Well, here we go...we're probably going to hear bitcoin mentioned on major US news programs this week.  Buckle up everybody, this is probably going to be a bumpy ride.

Can't be a bad thing, many first heard about it(myself included) in relation to silk road. While we have no interest in purchasing from silk road the bitcoin piqued interest. If it hits CNN negative or positive there's a fresh spike.

I fear for the bitcoin price and shutdown of currency exchange operator. We need to move faster to decentralized method of exchange.

The problem is that the Silkroad angle will be used to attack and possiblly legislate against bitcoin.  Senators are either themselves too stupid to understand that the connection between drugs and bitcoin is not a necessary one, or they do understand that, but are counting on the public not seeing the slight of hand they'll engage in in attacking bitcoin from that angle.  First impressions are important.  Some people will see past their obviously invalid or unsound arguments, but most people, sadly, won't.

While I am worried about silk road operator getting shut down, I am more worried bitcoin will be "collateral" damage. (Note, I can't be used as info source as I see nothing, know nothing).

This is just the sort of excuse that these guys need to attack bitcoin. The network likely won't withstand the attack. It was nice while it lasted...

The network is not the chokepoint. The exchanges are. http://bitcoinweekly.com/articles/anonymous-money-needs-an-anonymous-exchange

Stop being pussies and spreading this doom and gloom. Bitcoin isn't going anywhere. There is no way to close it down. It depends on everyone of YOU - not some schmuck in a cheap suit. If you use it, there won't be anyone who can do shit about it

The observant reader will notice that the word "bitcoin" is omitted from the article.

Also, Schumer is firmly in the pockets of New York financial wizards.

Don't paint us all with that brush.

"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."

Wow! Slush with his Bitcoin pool was today aired in Czech TV 24 - a local "kind of CNN". He was speaking about it. Nice to know how people look in real!
