An opinion piece by Rick Falkvinge in Swedish technology and IT newspaper "Ny Teknik". Has quite a lot of readers, 135 comments on that article so far.

(It's in swedish, could probably be translated using Google Translate with decent results)

For those of you who don't know, Falkvinge is the founder of the swedish Pirate Party, the first pirate party in the world. He has been blogging about bitcoin before. Those posts are well worth your time if you have not read them, he is a good writer:

Bitcoin mentioned in this month's Reason Magazine (October 2011) page 10:

"Busting Bitcoin. Senators target virtual currency" by Peter Suderman.

He reports on the lame attempt by some senators to try to ban the currency, and explains how a developer of bitcoin contacted by Reason's Katherine Mangu-Ward noted that "Attempting major illicit transactions with Bitcoin, given existen statistical analysis techniques deployed in the field by law enforcement, is pretty damned dumb"

CHUCK JAFFE
Bitcoin buyers throw good money after bad
Commentary: What’s in your wallet? Not this electronic currency

http://www.marketwatch.com/story/bitcoin-buyers-throw-good-money-after-bad-2011-08-26?pagenumber=1

"Bitcoin remains the Wild West, a dangerous new frontier. And no matter how attractive the concept, for now it’s the Stupid Investment of the Week."

"Stupid Investment of the Week highlights the conditions and characteristics that make an investment less than ideal for the average investor; it is not intended to be an automatic sell signal — early entrants in the Bitcoin world should decide if they want to lock down some of their gains or hold on to profit from the revolution that really could be coming — but rather points out the flaws that consumers often overlook when they are enamored with a popular investment idea."

Despite the negativity on bitcoin as an investment - this piece seems pretty balanced and while it's focused on the risks at the moment, it recognizes the potential too.

There is also a video discussion with Chuck Jaffe about it.
Quote

There is a thread in bitcoin discussion on this:
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=39638.0

Overall.. I think this article/video could be classed as a 'backhanded compliment' to bitcoin!


2011-09-29 The article appears on nj.com with a  more positive title

Market watch video about bitcoin:

Bitcoin to burn a hole in your pocket.

Not very positive. But than again, any publicity is good publicity.

But then... I wonder what the point of this thread is if people don't even read as far as 3 posts back.

This seems interesting..  
A piece in what seems to be a fairly major Chinese language financial site finance.sina.com.cn
( google page rank of 8 )

Quote


The story is reposted on finance.ifeng.com and chinadaily.com.cn ... looks like this story might be widely syndicated in China
(ifeng.com is another top 100 website according to alexa rankings)

The story is also picked up in Taiwan:

Shanghai based Sina is quite mainstream. Chinese interest could have an enormous impact on the bitcoin economy. I'm just concerned (for myself) that I'll be left out of the conversation.

Gold campaign moves to accept Bitcoin: "More than ever, we need an alternative currency"
by Sakura Saunders
2011-08-28
http://www.indybay.org/newsitems/2011/08/28/18688943.php


"With gold prices reaching a record high this month, ProtestBarrick – an all-volunteer campaign against the world's largest gold mining company – has decided to accept the new currency"

This is a piece that surprised me..  I guess there are always contentious issues around real-world mining - but I wasn't aware of Gold-specific campaigns, and it certainly hadn't occurred to me that this might be an argument for bitcoin!

Their donate bitcoins button is broken. They serve to raise the gold price, no? Seems like an exercise in futility.

With New Miramax Partnership, Facebook Gears Up to Take on the G-20
Simit Patel
2011-08-28
http://www.businessinsider.com/with-new-miramax-partnership-facebook-gears-up-to-take-on-the-g-20-2011-8


"Facebook's monetary policy is critical here. What if Facebook all of sudden reprices the exchange rate between FB Credits and US dollars? Can they seize your FB Credits directly? If so, can you go to a jurisdiction in the global nation-state system and take legal action against FB and accuse them of theft? Other companies in the field of virtual worlds have faced these issues before; the Chinese government has even banned certain virtual currencies for their de-stabilizing effects. Likewise, US Senator Charles Schumer has identified Bitcoin as a threat to the US economy. "

I think they want to help people whose human rights are being abused. I doubt they are interested in the price of gold - if it goes up becasue less people being abused then I'm sure they would be equally happy.

The great experiment Bitcoin

"Bitcoin uses the BitTorrent peer to peer protocol and is therefore untouchable. The only way to use them to address the end user to address them. Experienced companies in the music industry has largely learned. Napster was a legal entity with an office that could be boarded, not BitTorrent."

"Regulators like the Nederlandsche Bank (DNB) realize that. Kees Verhagen, DNB spokesman said Bitcoin for some time, 'closely followed'."
