Probably nothing new in this article, but it is at least positive and points out what many of us already know:

the first country to pull the trigger could likely become the next powerhouse in finance and industry.

Good informative piece for the layman on the real issues at the root and bitcoin's potential role in the ongoing currency crises saga.

Well done Jeff Fong.

"Mercadolibre, Ebay's affiliate in Latin America, has begun supporting Bitcoin transactions, which is no small thing considering the site has 49 million registered users."

Good stuff.

Exactly like that one; he didn't even bother listening to the article writer's comments, just continued to be a blind ignorant asshole.  Forget the puppy, I wanna kick him, instead.

A good start but a long way to go. At present there are 118 products that can be bought on the site with BTC. I doubt that this is even 0.01%. Still,  it is a start and hopefully the number will grow. 
BTW I think it is already perfectly possible for vendors on ebay to accept bitcoins. And a few already do.
