I am a Wikipedian myself, so I'll try to help a bit with this.

One thing that you need to understand: notability is established by significant coverage of the subject in reliable secondary sources, per the general notablity guideline.

The article's content is OK in general, so you'll have to focus on proving its notability.

If you check my history you'll see I too contribute a lot to Wikipedia. I'm sure this article passes notability guidelines but the person who deleted it was just a dick. The consensus was overwhelming not to delete... But he still did. And he set it so that the article can't be recreated... WTF? And he's deleted 300 of articles but only created 1. That guy does not deserve admin rights.

I looked him up. he knows a lot about icebergs.

That is all.

We have a heavy media coverage. We're on slashdot, again.

This should be more than enough for inclusion.

On a side note was mentioned in the same article. They setup a wikileaks donation page. That took some gumption if you ask me so wouldnt they be worth approaching as a possible bitcoin exchanger?
