The comments after the article are far better than the article itself.

Your comment persuaded me to take a look at them. I'm glad I did. There are thoughtful people out there who "get it" - posters claiming to be from Brazil, Canada, New Zealand, China, even "the internet". Great to see! Perhaps the present era of media FUD will end in this way, with facts from the amateurs relentlessly trumping spin from the professionals.
There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. EWallets are like banks -- a central organization has complete control over your money. You shouldn't put much money in EWallets.

Wow.  Did he even provide any evidence to anything or just likes to rant random things out of nowhere.

Pure straight out of his ass.




I'm going to have a chat with this guy.  It'll be hilarious if/once bitcoins hit like 100K.

It was the New York Slimes.  What did you expect from them...real journalism?

As I said on HackerNews:

This article is posted on DealBook (strictly speaking an entity independent from the NYTimes). DealBook is a financial-news website founded by Andrew Ross Sorkin [1]. This person has always had an anti-Bitcoin stance, probably because he clearly does not understand Bitcoin at all (see him interview the Winklevoss twins about Bitcoin: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1oGuKEazS5o ) and people tend to be dubious or scared by something they don't understand.
