There is a new awesome article about Bitcoin on BitcoinMedia.
(A little TL;DR though)

We are on the verge of revolution. A revolution that will make the industrial revolution seem trivial. We stand at the focus, the cumulation, the precipice, of a fundamental re-thinking of our shared social fabric. Actions today will reverberate for centuries. Technologies like bitcoin evince prophecy.
(...)
To create a computer program, programmers write in a special language called a programming language. This programming language is a halfway point between the ambiguous world of human language and the highly mathematical world of machine language. This code they write is termed sourcecode. If I wish to understand how a program works or make modifications to it, then I must have access to this code.

This source code was shared freely between developers. Source code has the unique property of being free to redistribute, free to manufacture into software and of being highly reusable across many projects. By mixing and matching pieces of software across projects, developers created a new world in cyber space. Tools to write, edit music, solve math, discover science and create art.
(...)
We stated before, the 3 principles underlying the hacker movement online; privacy, anti-authority and transparency. One particular sub-group within this movement are crypto-anarchists. Using cryptography, the idea is to enforce privacy by encrypting communications protecting personal privacy and making them impossible to eavesdrop on by authority.

My congratulations, Genjix !

//BTW, Before somebody asks, I was not asked/told/paid/forced/whatever by Genjix to write this post.
//I just noticed it fits this forum, so here ya go.

D1 (as in Ditto 1 or +1).

I would gladly give Mr. Wiggle to have the ability to pen prose like that. I enjoyed that read immensely. Good show, genjix! Good show.

Thanks Smiley It's cool you all like it. noagendamarket gifted me the site before he left, and I had it kicking around for a while. Decided to finally put it to good use. Too many obscure bits of bitcoin knowledge get lost to the wayside and buried in forum posts. And then lost forever.
