Bitcoins will skyrocket soon. There seems to be a delay on some of the articles being prepared about Bitconf.
Well that's wildly optimistic.
Although journalists seem to write some pretty silly stuff when covering technical stories sometimes.. they're not silly enough to let themselves be used just to hype or pump some little group's vibe... especially if it looks like many in the group are just out to make profit from the extra eyeballs.
We may see a mention of it in something like wired.. but perhaps the conference will be just a side-note and the main coverage will be something like botnets and the GPU bitcoin mining trojans appearing.
