Just saw Freedomwatch with Andrew Napolitano... five min segment on Bitcoin with Jerry Brito of George Mason University's Mercatus Center. This is national prime time television on Fox Business Network.

Super great discussion. They showed the WeUseCoins video, and had screenshots of Tradehill. Brito knew what he was talking about and presented it very well. Trying to find a youtube clip or link... will update post shortly.

EDIT: I recorded it from my Tivo and here it is:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=W3s6R23vmRY

LOL man it's on my freakin' Tivo but I can't find mentions or youtube clips yet. I feel like I was hallucinating, but it was real. The whole show tonight was on monetary policy - the fed, gold standards, etc. This was like a special sunday edition or something. Played at 8pm EST, Bitcoin was 3rd segment.

LOL that's my Halloween 2009 costume in Dubai. I like it cause it's a very serious photo, with a very silly outfit. Shows the duality of existence.

Well I'll be go'ed tah hell!!!

Early on in my analysis of Bitcoin, I wondered if it might be possible that some of the higher powered players (rich people, intel agencies, etc) would see in Bitcoin some of the potentials that I did.  I basically decided recently that they were not else they would have been actually propping up the system to keep it above where it has gone lately.  That would include such things as running highly interesting puff-pieces in the mainstream media and that sort of thing.  But now this!  So...maybe I'll re-open that hypothesis.

Another hypothesis I toyed with was whether it would be possible to take down BTC values so aggressively that a lot of the large 'early adopter' types and thieves would throw in the towel and cough up their stash.  I decided that that hypothesis is not believable either mostly because although I'm not well versed in market manipulation, it seems unlikely that it could be done so effectively.  I'm still seeking an explanation for my vastly wrong estimate about how low demand could get, but am more inclined to write off this mis-estimate to my own clouded analytical abilities than to an effective public perception campaign which I see little evidence of.

I noticed that awsome advertising and thought it interesting.  I wondered immediately if perhaps Napolitano or some of his minions were not an angel investor with Tradehill Smiley

If I had to be associated with Bruce Wagner or Faux News, I guess I would choose Faux.  Even though Faux News is more repulsive even than Bruce, it's simply better advertising.

I have very little hope that almost any of the poor mouth-breathers who watch Fox News will have what it takes to protect themselves amongst the jackels in our little community.  I just hope they do go to Tradehill/bitcoin.com and that Kenna and company do live up to my hopes of being solid individuals who will take an interest in doing some amount of education.

I'm a fairly happy customer of Tradehill and have done almost all of my Bitcoin related business with them, but I feel that it is a total shit-head move for them not to put a clear link to 'bitcoin.org' on their home page (unless they were asked not to for some reason.)  This even when the do actually have some service there, but especially now when the do not.

Fox Business is not really the same as Fox News, besides sharing the same owners.

+1  they're quite different. Fox Business is a pretty good channel, much more like CNBC than like Fox News

The hard money crowd definitely watches Judge Napolitano.  He's one of the very few people who speaks the truth.  This is definitely good for Bitcoins.

Very nice find, evoorhees.

Thanks for the correction.  I could make some excuse like I was talking about the cross-over audiance, but won't (since it is not really true.)

LOL (really!)  Saying that Fox Biz is 'good like CNBC' has got to be a joke, right?
