So my father would like to know more about bitcoin.  Specifically he wants me to point him to some articles so he can do some of his own leg-work. 

What are your favorite articles that either got you into Bitcoin, or that help you advocate bitcoin?

Make sure to show him the other side of Bitcoin too.

Just point him a link to this forum. It will show him Bitcoin. I bet you are afraid to.

He's a psychology student working on his masters capstone and his preparing to work on his doctorate.  We discuss some things about the forum, but he's interested in articles.  I've left this page and the Bitcoin press hits page up for him so he can visit at his leisure.

Edit- For those of you who do not get what I'm saying.  Between a full time job and working on your Masters you are essentially working 2 jobs.  One of which keeps you up to 1 AM on a regular basis.  My dad does not have the leisure time to sort through the garbage on the forums.

The Bits and Bob article in the Economist is by far the best article from the press so far.  For a technical description the omega tau podcast is well worth the hour and a half of time.  Both can be found on the Press page on the Bitcoin wiki:
