This is the most annoying criticism of all.  The world has changed and is changing.  We have reached or are approaching a time when digital things can replace physical things.  That's just the way it's going.  Stop fighting it.

Remember wikipedia? The world finally accept wikipedia is here to stay after a decade. Now everyone is "meh". Someday, bitcoin is be "meh" too.

+1

I don't think that you young people can quite understand just how revolutionary Wikipedia was and still is.  I remember growing up in the Dark Ages, prior to the Great Internet Event (tm).  My father paid a small fortune for an incomplete encyclopedia, and I read all 23 volumes that we had in a single Summer.  Now days, an 11 year old can call 'bs' on an adult full of it in two minutes with a cell phone.  My grandfather would just make stuff up to screw with us kids.  We never could know if he was feeding us a line or not because his lies were so plausible to an eight year old.  I can't do that to a six year old without one running to the computer to check googlw or wikipedia.

"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."

Meh is the stage at which we have won.  Once the masses start using bitcoin *without being aware that they are using bitcoin*, then that will be the Meh stage of social acceptance.

Security Now covers the week of bitcoin woes. The worst thing he did was tell everyone that wallet encryption is a feature that's already implemented in the client.

Bitcoin combines money, the wrongest thing in the world, with software, the easiest thing in the world to get wrong.

Maybe he is on the cutting edge of it, because this is really close to release.

OMG, I don't belive it.  That was a suprizingly balanced non-hypey straight-forward, relatively-factual article.  It's nice for a change!!  Wink

One last caveat: Bitcoins are stored in a "wallet," which is nothing but an encrypted file on your computer. There is no central bank, and losing this file means you've lost all of your Bitcoins. So if you do use Bitcoin for anything serious, be sure to constantly back up this file to protect. Encryption might not go amiss either, as the Allinvain heist suggests. Digital wallets are vulnerable to hacks, and Symantec recently reported a Bitcoin-stealing Trojan.

Wow.... surprisingly wise and simple advise.  I think people actually will be smarter off after reading this article.  Smiley

"nothing but an encrypted file on your computer"

No way, really??!  Shocked....</sarcasm>

The best advice that they can give is this. If you want to use bitcoins you gotta become a unix geek. Sorry grandma but bitcoin is just not ready for you yet.

Oppps!!!  I missed that!  Wow...they screwed up there.  Yet another journalist who doesn't bother to fact check.

Encrypted wallets need to be by default in future client downloads.
