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??



Great talking points. LOVE the emphasis on BTC being slightly more traceable than cash. We need to define the narrative and steer it away from the illicit transactions, and I thought you did a great job.

Agreed. It's good you guys didn't spend much time talking about the drug fiasco like all the other press sorces

Perfect interview man.

It's not a press hit, and Gavin is perhaps too modest to post it here, but I consider this a notable source (per the thread title):

     But you can use it to buy DRUGS!

I don't think it's a joke. Bitcoin has been in the South African press lately:

http://mybroadband.co.za/news/columns/20402-sa-mobile-operator-to-integrate-bitcoin-cryptocurrency.html

(That first one was already posted in this thread before)

Not really bitcoin press, but mentions 'digital currency' as an enabling technology.

"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."

http://www.openmarket.org/2011/06/06/bitcoins-four-objections/

The bias is obvious with statements like:
"The unbridgeable gap here is the transition from being used by a small group of hobbyists in barter to being used by financial institutions and the man on the street as a proper money."
I think he means currently existing "financial institutions" and MY "proper money"
Maybe we can help him as a gold/BTC trader.

FTA:
"The problem is that BitCoins aren’t issued by a government"

Aww...  Who's the sad statist?

It's okay little buddy - there's still time to wrap your head around the idea of scarcity.  We'll be right here with the bucket of crow everyone seems to be trying to force feed us.

BitCoin is the future of a single worldwide currency. It seems like God sent it.
Remember what happened to Jesus? Also God-sent...

Expect a SWAT-team in your bitcoin exchange when it threatens to go main stream.  Cool

Amen, brother, amen.

Switzerland's 20 minuten online: http://www.20min.ch/finance/news/story/Der-gefaehrliche-Cyber-Dollar-15423297

Although the author mainly talks about how dangerous bitcoin could be (quoting Blogger Jason Calacanis and the German BVDW), he still tries to give some "neutral" information and expresses his curiosity about whether or not bitcoin is here to stay. Does anybody know if this was in the print issue today as well? If it did, this is definitely a mainstream coverage for Switzerland. According to the German wikipedia (http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/20_Minuten#Schweiz), it is the most-read daily newspaper in Switzerland with a reach of roughly 1.5 million readers.

Missed this one. Bitcoin was mentioned briefly on WGN radio (huge Chicago based talk radio station) last Friday morning.
