I walked up to them. “Excuse me,” I said, “I heard you accept Bitcoins here?”

“Yes, of course,” the owner replied, nonchalantly.

Haha! Excellent

Awesome.  I saved Meze Grill's address in my addressbook.  I'm going to be in NYC in a couple months and I'll pay a visit!

I read the whole article. It starts very good, but it ends badly. You dont need a central bank to have reversible transactions. In fact, Bitcoin has implemented a system to have reversible transactions.

Start by not using Windows. Smiley

Set up an account on mybitcoin.com and pick a very strong password.  Use the online wallet just as you would a local wallet.

Frequently change your btc to usd at one of the exchanges so you're not exposed to too much currency risk.  The minor risk of losing some bitcoin will be equivalent to having your local cash registers robbed.  The upside is the love of all the local BTC users.

(I am in no way affiliated with mybitcoin.com, but their site is pretty slick.  I like it.)

Or use an instawallet. When funds make it to the instawallet address, send them to an offline wallet that you have previously set up.

Use a paper wallet, requires no computer.  See my sig line.

Companies claiming they got hacked and lost your coins sounds like fraud so perfect it could be called fashionable.  I never believe them.  If I ever experience the misfortune of a real intrusion, I declare I have been honest about the way I have managed the keys in Casascius Coins.  I maintain no ability to recover or reproduce the keys, not even under limitless duress or total intrusion.  Remember that trusting strangers with your coins without any recourse is, as a matter of principle, not a best practice.  Don't keep coins online. Use paper wallets instead.

mybitcoin.com is the last place I would look for security.  They did nothing about the MtGox security breach, so users lost over 4k BTC from the site.
