I think I found it on Reddit, but I read a lot of blogs too.

I joined the bitcoin world after I read this article: http://www.geekfalcon.com/07/bitcoin-912, then I looked for extra information and I bought a Radeon HD 5870 graphic card.
Now I have stopped because the price of Bitcoin is too low for my opinion.

I read an article about it a few weeks ago and thought I'd give it a try to see how the whole system worked.  Of course my GTX 580's weren't very good miners.  They went to eBay and I now have some ATI cards mining away.  I did have to sacrifice some gaming performance, but it's worth it so far.

Receiving a coin as a gift is an awesome way to get started. I was introduced to it by Reddit

I first heard about it on a Rooster Teeth Podcast. Did some research and it seemed like a cool thing. Never really bought into it until I learned about Silk Road. That's when I started buying coins. Funny thing is that I have never actually bought anything on Silk Road yet. I'm just having fun speculating.

I was reading an article about Bitcoins in the magazine new Scientist and got interested because of the freedom it gives you in being a worldwide currency with no borders. Then when I saw that each coins was worth $3.30 I got into it with my friend and have been trading since then.

I honestly don't recall. I've been "into" the whole BTC thing for the last few years. Just never done anything with it.
I have a bit more hardware so started playing with mining and such.

Really interested to see Bitcoin really go somewhere.

Bitcoin was introduced to me by a good friend of mine, he didn't tell me that it's addictive.

I was looking up ways to sell my computing power for money after using F@H a couple times.  Found out about mining, but didn't wanna go for all the mining rigs and stuff, so instead I invested about $20 into Bitcoins through Mt. Gox and a couple months later I literally tripled it into $60. Then I quit for a while and now I'm back for round 2.

My cousin started a pool, I got hooked when I saw that you can use computer hardware to earn money in a profitable, not taxable way.  I have invested probably 10,000 dollars so far in BTC and continue to grow.

I buy and sell GPUs, most 5850s and 7970s.

I have a couple bare bone mining rigs for sale as well.

Wikipedia. I was looking for an alternative for Moneybookers, preferably one that doesn't take away money if I transfer money or tells me to need to have a bank account.

I was looking at the payment methods for a site, and saw bitcoin as one. I was like 'WTF is bitcoin?', so I did a google search, and here I am!
