Its apparent from the video in that article, many journalists still think bitcoin is maintained by nobody.
I guess its hard for people to grasp that it is maintained by everybody, literally.

Our company is based in Cyprus so we can tell you for sure that a lot of people started looking at bitcoin after the "haircut".

excellent decision by the administrators, I hope that the bitcoin cyprots take this to their legislators to see if they would be interested in adopting bitcoin as an acceptable form of payment to pay tax, etc.

If this happened I'm pretty sure I'd migrate any potential business I might be forming to cyprus, and I could certainly imagine quite a few wealthy bitcoin holders would consider the same.
