Hi all, I was asked for a write-up on Bitcoin for Silver Circle's blog. This was posted today (don't forget to reddit!):

I don't get to spend enough time reading about Bitcoin. Glad my time wasn't wasted on this, I enjoyed it.
Keep up the good work.

At the end of the article it mentions you are involved in the free-state project. Is there alot of interest in bitcoin within the free state project?

The interest is growing quickly. Libertarians in general tend to be very skeptical of any money that is not silver or gold (understandably). As they come to see Bitcoin as the greatest enabler of international free markets I think they'll start loving it. If you know Free Talk Live (national radio show) they're talking btc frequently, and this year at PorcFest Bitcoin was a very hot topic.

 Rumor has it the FSP will be accepting btc donations shortly...  Grin

Great article, one worth forwarding to friends.  Hope I'll be able to buy my lunch with bitcoins sometime soon.

Losing hundreds of Bitcoins with the best scammers in the business - BFL, Avalon, KNC, HashFast.

In this context, I think "pure gold!" is a compliment Wink

Forwarded and shared. I like the focus on how Bitcoin simplifies, staying away from projections of future value etc.
