It appears to me that the U.S. Treasury's FinCEN has created for themselves a wide net that has the potential to have a significant impact on Bitcoin.  The agency is holding a Town Hall meeting in November in Vienna VA.  I wonder if there are any exchanges or traders who would be interested in attending.  The event is not open to all so the attendees (prepaid access providers) must apply to be considered.  Applications by email must be submitted by October 21, 2011.  Here is more info on the event and on the application steps:

There is more information about why this could affect Bitcoin here:
