I LOLed when this said: "The last time he’d been this excited was when Windows came out."

That's just so wrong on so many levels. Does the Observer not care which version, or is Bruce rightfully assuming his target audience to be the average Joe who thinks IE6 is 'The Internet'? And if we look at the statement itself, if you were excited when Windows came out you were either mental (1.0), or working for Microsoft marketing (95). Or you are well aware of what Microsoft were/are doing and represent but you have no moral fiber and are trying to drive up prices with less than subtle Microsoft stock parallels.

I must admit I'm fairly new to all of this and Bruce seemed like an OK guy when I first saw his show (with Plato's cross country trip), but this and the ponzi talk he gave on the freedom radio show puts a big dent in that.

This is coming in a little late, but...

Bitcoin was mentioned on episode 680 of The Survival Podcast (around the 52 minute mark). He specifically asked for someone who is involved with Bitcoin to come on the show and do an interview. If that's you, go here.

I was a young teenager at the time; but I was really excited when windows 95 came out.  I imagine the DOS -> Windows transition had a lot of people smiling as well.

Et tu Brute? DOS to which Windows? 3.1? If you were still using DOS when 95 came out you must have been living in a special cave where no Amiga, Mac, by then even Linux existed for years (or you had no friends and whatever dad bought for work was the universe, no offense). Those systems were out for up to 11 years earlier and in various ways still/already superior. 95 was a special horror in many ways but this isn't the place for that (woe onto support). 3.1 even more so (extreme productivity loss through massive slowdown and instability compared to DOS). If you do mean 1.0, *facepalm*

Nesico, how about shutting your pie-hole.

You obviously don't know jack about how computing was at that time, or you'd just 'eff off.

Yeah, I'm serious.

I convinced some OWNI journalists to have a deeper look into bitcoin. OWNI is one of the most popular news website on the French speaking web.

Now, they have plenty of articles about bitcoin: http://owni.fr/tag/bitcoin/

Unfortunately, the author of "De la révolution monétaire au Ponzi 2.0" has not been doing his homework and made several mistakes… on which he based his conclusions that Bitcoin is a Ponzi.

stream.aljazeera.com had a good talk yesterday. http://stream.aljazeera.com/episode/6630. Bitcoin discussion starts at 24:40. Definitely positive tones all around and I think Jerry Brito does a good job in talking for bitcoin.

a Bitcoin article is also being included in the print edition of the Economist
http://www.economist.com/node/18836780

Less technically detailed than the original article which appears in the online blog (Babbage)

http://www.bookofjoe.com/2011/06/new-dutch-coins-have-qr-codes-bitcoin-is-so-over.html
it all makes sense now.
bitcoins will be to the web what the qr code / rfid chips money will be to the rest of the world.
And the result will be the exact opposite of what we want, and that will be the end of anonymity for everyone.
pretty sad...

has the latest Falkvinge piece been mentioned yet? (sorry if I've missed it)

Bitcoin’s Four Drivers: Part One – Unlawful Trade
http://falkvinge.net/2011/06/16/bitcoins-four-drivers-part-one-unlawful-trade/

Quote
BITCOIN’S FOUR DRIVERS
This is an article in a series on what Falkvinge identifies as Bitcoin’s four drivers (plus a surprise opportunity). This is the first article, on unlawful trade. The others are international trade (coming June 18), merchant trade (coming June 20), investment (coming June 22), and a low friction economy (coming June 24).

Anybody understand what this guy is talking about?

Looking for an easy way to charge bitcoins at: houseofreplicas.net, high quality replica watches. Using WP with the E-shop plug-in at the moment for charging credit-cards.

Not at all.  The link was talking about gold and silver coins with a qr code web address printed upon them.  Not a thing about rfid chips.

"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."

Main Dutch computer site with blurb about the 25k BTC heist (first article on Bitcoin there):

It's a collector's coin with the currently hip thing, nothing to do with the mainstream. RFID/NFC is coming, whether you like it or not, but that has little to do with Bitcoin. QR codes are little more than barcode 2.0.

eof's dad? Smiley Sorry if I came across as acrimonious, but seeing the oblivious rosily reminiscing about one of the blackest days in computing history (yeah, I was was there, seriously) makes my skin crawl. PM me if you feel the need to retort.
