although i personally hate the guy.. i think about all sides of the story and i prefer to read it like this

employee is paid in only bitcoin, is able to pay for house in only bitcoin, get his grocery's and fastfood in only bitcoin.

although i glossed over the inner workings of his employment. it is a milestone event that somone can successfully have a pure bitcoin life, well not quite 'pure' but you get the idea.

anyone else with bitcoin life stories that have no hidden employment stories that will taint any positive news about bitcoins usability?

What a pleasant fantasy!

I think a more realistic viewpoint is that BFL and it's executives are clearly guilty of "fraud in the inducement", and are now using the proceeds of said fraud for personal enrichment. 

I am fan #1 of honest, successful businessmen.  This is not an example of such persons, however.

trust me i am on the same side as you. but BFL has been bashed to death. so instead of spinning a story about life on bitcoins into another BFL bash event. lets get creative and explain to the world the positives of bitcoin. that people can live on it. hense why i asked if there was any less deceiptful people that had a similar story of buying bitcoin houses (with legitimate earnings ofcourse)

much like i have in the past (although i detest drug dealers and hackers) have positively spun the propaganda of hackers and silk road to say

"if a hacker cant break bitcoin, thus trusting it enough to hold their own wealth.. then shouldnt everyone trust it too"
"if governments cant track individuals though drug payments.. then your wife wont track your hooker/porn payments."

The take away point is that paycheck, house, car, groceries *can* be done and what can happen usually does. It's good these are setting a foundation to iron out the kinks, learn the new process and pave the way for a wider adoption. So go bitcoin life.

You say "anti government" like that's a bad thing...

Honest people makes this world a better place to live ...

people like Hal Finney

Quote
But in following the clues that led me to Finney, I found something equally significant: a dying man who had been something like a far-more-brilliant Forrest Gump of cryptographic history: a witness to and participant in practically every important moment in the recent history of secret-keeping technologies. From the development of the first widely used strong encryption software known as PGP, to early anonymity systems, to the first Bitcoin transaction, Finney was there.

btw the first time I heard about "X.509 Vs Web of Trust"  and I started my interest in networking was because I was "listen" guys like him, my tutors etc ...

Those guys, the tutors, the idealists are the real heros here ...
