FreeTalkLive talked about bitcoin and the silk road. http://www.freetalklive.com/

I would rather not advertise Silk Road, and frankly wish it would go away.

Eh? I haven't heard of Silk Road ripping anyone off or anything like that.

I don't think it's a question of Silk Road ripping people off, I think (and I can't speak for jgarzik here, this is just my guess, and also partly my opinion) it's a question of attracting "the wrong attention" to bitcoin. Another poster raised the issue of "cute kitten activism". Basically, if an online service reaches the point where people are using it to post pictures of cute kittens it becomes politically tricky to shut the service down. I'm not convinced bitcoin is at that stage, yet. We need to get to a stage where "the enemy" think "yes, it enables Silk Road, but we can't shut bitcoin down because my mother and my daughter use it to X" (where "X" is something like posting cute kitty pictures). Until we get there, Silk Road is a risk. Great, yes, but still a risk.

True. I don't see anyone buying cute kittens with Bitcoins (yet). Of course, the real key to getting Bitcoin adopted is porn. Once you can subscribe to your favorite porn site with Bitcoin, it will hit critical mass shortly afterward.

Make the bitcoin economy the epicenter of the public domain economy. So when try to shut down bitcoin, it will make them look like evil monopolists or corrupted.

Public domain economic activities is very much benign movement compared to "pirate parties" political operation.

Anyone, feel free to convince any porn website (or any other website) to accept Bitcoins and get some for yourself:

Companies claiming they got hacked and lost your coins sounds like fraud so perfect it could be called fashionable.  I never believe them.  If I ever experience the misfortune of a real intrusion, I declare I have been honest about the way I have managed the keys in Casascius Coins.  I maintain no ability to recover or reproduce the keys, not even under limitless duress or total intrusion.  Remember that trusting strangers with your coins without any recourse is, as a matter of principle, not a best practice.  Don't keep coins online. Use paper wallets instead.

Offtipic sorry, but I must say above article (even though I read it translated by google to english), is the most complete while condensed introduction to bitcoin I've seen so far. It has everything from a general description and motivation to details like Alpaca Socks... also mentions google. Quite a piece!

Awesome!  Here's the money quote:

Quote
"Anything can serve as a currency and ultimately the winners will possess the characteristics that people demand: portable, fungible, easily divisible, and reasonably scarce," said John Matonis, editor of The Monetary Future blog and an outspoken advocate for private currencies. "Coins did serve that function, but a coin cannot be jammed through a broadband connection and molecularly transported. We must evolve now."

"We will not find a solution to political problems in cryptography, but we can win a major battle in the arms race and gain a new territory of freedom for several years.

Governments are good at cutting off the heads of a centrally controlled networks, but pure P2P networks are holding their own."
