Well, i am expect something coming from China, but it looks like it starting in US. I am no surprised really, because US was 2-nd in the list.

We will  meet in not-so-distant future.

Though I'm not a resident of NY or WV, I've written both Senators. I tried to shed a more positive light on Bitcoin. I encourage other American voters to do the same.

As a small business owner, I want to provide any legitimacy that I can to Bitcoin's public perception. I'm not part of the tin foil hat crowd and don't believe that the Senators are uncaring Illuminati robot aliens. But if I disappear, you know who to blame.  Wink I wrote to them with my real name and business address. I feel that this is a cause worth fighting for.

We need a positive narrative. Right now the narrative is that bitcoin is helping drug traffickers do their...things.

I saw the negative narrative as "Schumer has made himself the frontman for financial facism", but we'll see how it develops from here.

I'd like to sell short everyone's bitcoins on Mt.Gox and buy them back later for nothing.  Can someone please help me do this?  Do you know of any short markets for bitcoins?  I really hate this currency more than fiat and that should give you all a clue.  I can just see this is a central banker (gypsy) joke, get everyone to buy Bitcoins, and then create Bitcoin2 the newer and better bitcoin.  Followed by bitcoin3, bitcoin4, bitcoin5, Satoshi1,satoshi2, satoshi3, and all other QE equivalents.  So what if bitcoins are limited, the source code is all there for anyone and I mean anyone to create a new bitcoin and counterfeit the general idea and create infinite variants, how stupid do people have to be to sell their semiworthless fiat for something even more worthless as bitcoins? I mean I'm surprised someone hasn't already started BC#2 as the computation time is too high for BC#1.  Heck I might even start BC#2 but I want to know how to short BC#1 first to get the maximal return from suckers.  Is it Halloween because I see a bunch of 3 foot suckers with candy bags in their hands and I have a sweet tooth.  You know why this bitch coin hasn't been shut down yet?  Because the central bankers know you are going to get burned, and then they can regulate this whole shit to protect the morons.  Yes there could be peer to peer fractonal bartering without deflation or inflation and they know that and this is why they created this Canaanite (along with enriching their crooked pals) to prevent any future development by protecting and regulating Bitcoin morons.  I bet you right now some old grandmother is using all her dead old man's savings to buy this crap, and she'll be the first to be crying on TV in a 60 minutes interview how she was taken and there needs to be laws to protect dumb old grannies.

I can guarantee this is a good way to kill future central bank free money, like peer-peer fractional barter.  Get everyone suckered into Bitcoins and create an artificial scarce wake so nobody gets into peer to peer fractional bartering.  Then slowly introduce BC#2, BC#3, BC#1001 until finally people come to realize that there is no intrinsic value to BC#1.  Like I said I hate this monkey money more than I do the flimsy dollar bill.

You'd have to read the source and documentation, and uh, actually know something about bitcoin to do this.  It's clear you don't have the first clue.  But please, start your new currency and report back to us how it turns out.

Wow, this is huge.... I agree that this will probably be on TV news within the week. Can't decide whether to cash out or buy in.

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!

http://www.ct24.cz/vysilani/2011/06/05/211411058050022-20:00-horizont-ct24/ - since 14:00
(Sorry folks, in Czech language only!)

The talk was recorded on 6/2/2011 and Slush proudly stated BTC broke 10 USD Smiley)).

The most important words that were said can be understood in any language

Satoshi Nakamoto - Genius

yeah, and also: "clondike"

Now if I were going to call these guys, I would forget about Bitcoin and Tor and stick with the end prohibition message.

Maybe if we buy them a nice pair of alpaca socks.

how about sending them a bitmail containing considerable amount of coins. If they accept the coins... voilá

Here is my radio interview with BBC World Service:

     http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/p00gy4hb/The_World_Today_03_06_2011

Bitcoins start around ~43:30 into the show.

Disclaimers:  Yes, I have a Southern Drawl, and yes there are way too many "uh's" in there Smiley

Edit:  can anyone figure out how to download and save the audio??
