I am in a writing mood tonight, so I wrote two short essays that I think will help Bitcoin along by answering in detail a few questions I think people have.  I posted them in the Wiki, for lack of a better place, and perhaps for some collaboration.

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.

I really like both articles. Deep yet understandable explanations of confusing subjects. My metaphorical hat off to you, sir.
