Due to new content ready for publication: the ransom price is now .70 BTC.

New to the ransom are, The Gavinator by Joey Dangerous and Calm After the Storm by Vitalik Buterin.

Also, the ransom balance should shortly be .1001 BTC as one donor donated an extra .0001 BTC to verify his ownership.

I don't get it. You want .70 BTC from people or else you won't publish some article? ...And I care about the article because?

Want me to shut up? It's 1BTC/day Tongue
Check the firstbits.

Read http://bitcoinweekly.com

If you like the articles or the comics there, then consider donating some bitcent. You don't have to pay the whole ransom amount.

It's necessary because bitcoinweekly needs to pay its writers and cartoonists. Paying bitcoin compensate them for their work and help them produce more articles and comics.

sent you a very small donation there. Not much but hopefully if you get many people to send a small amount it'll add up.

It's easy to miss these notifications in the forum. If you had a mailing list or something like that might get a better response.

The Gavinator comic is now posted, but I don't have time to release the other stuff for ransom. Gottach get back to my US dollars denominated job.

This is a perfect example of how unorganized the Bitcoin community is; the majority of which are off on their own producing poorly organized websites in attempts to get a few Bitcents.

I really wish people would post about their ideas BEFORE they do them, so that they can have some help doing it right.

 Huh Huh Huh
