Cyber revolt!
You got up, you worked, you slept, you died. Loyalties were to our immediate family, maybe our community. Work was only a means to provide for your family. Your ecology might only be your town (villages by today’s standards). Tribal or national boundaries were strong as a foreigner was strange. Unusual. Not a common occurence.

We just released another video from the conference Grin

[eurobit] Rick Falkvinge – Banks: The Fourth Victim of Citizen’s empowerment
Falkvinge compares past examples of technology adoption like email and the postal service, eventually drawing parallels with bitcoin and the banks. Email was largely ignored in the beginning by the postal industry because it was not a competitor.

A little bit of a techy article/tutorial:

[libbitcoin] Overview
libbitcoin is a bitcoin library targeted towards high end use. The library places a heavy focus around asychronicity. The enables a big scope for future scalability as each component has its own thread pool. By increasing the number of threads for that component the library is able to scale outwards across CPU cores. This will be vital in the future as the demands of the bitcoin network grow.

BitTalk.TV Stefan Thomas interview
Stefan Thomas discusses bitcoin’s direction. There are many big speakers in the community, but Stefan is an actual developer having contributed a useful library that has enabled several interesting sites and wallets to exist. He understands the protocol and core code. And the bitcoin introduction video on the WeUseCoins website.

Founder of world’s largest ponzi company pimps bitcoin
Sergei Mavrodi was the founder of MMM, a Russian company that perpetuated one of the world's largest ponzi schemes of all time during the 1990s. Around 5 to 40 million people lost up to $10 billion. Its founder was eventually found guilty of defrauding 10,000 investors of $4.3 million and sentenced to four and a half years in a penal colony.

Catherine Flick: Bitcoin and the Dual-Use Dilemma
When me and Martin Dittus held the Bitcoin Weekend at the London Hackspace, Catherine Flick sent us this video on her research into bitcoin as a computer ethicist.

Catherine is a researcher in technology ethics at Middlesex University. She started investigating the potential social and ethical impact of Bitcoin, and is currently evaluating a first survey.

[libbitcoin] First steps
This tutorial will create a simple program in Python using libbitcoin’s Python bindings to read the version information of a remote bitcoin node. We will need to connect to the bitcoin node and send it a version packet. The other bitcoin node should respond back with their own version packet which we can examine.

Facebook privacy
Critics of bitcoin ask why privacy is important. An ongoing discussion about the role of personal privacy in digital contexts polarises. It is a debate that will forever change the fabric of our shared online culture.

Electrum 0.38 – aliases and signed URIs
Electrum is a lightweight client written in Python. The design is an improvement over Bitcoin-Qt because the user interface and core code are split into a client and a server. This means you can run an Electrum server instance, and use the same bitcoin from a wide variety of devices. Server instances are analogous to email servers, and the Electrum client with email clients.

BBC 5 live investigates Silk Road and Bitcoins
I wish more Bitcoin proponents would embrace the Silk Road, and what it stands for, as a positive social force; both for Bitcoin’s growth and success, but also more generally as a new tool for the safe disobedience of unjust laws. Instead it seems they more often try to downplay the size and influence of Silk Road (falsely too), in an attempt to distance themselves, and the rest of the Bitcoin community, from the “illegal activity” going on. This is a strategy from Bitcoiners that I honestly don’t understand.

Tim Schafer raised $800,000 in 24 hours
Tim Schafer is a legend within the game designers community. Although his video games are not massive commercial successes, they are critically acclaimed. In particular his use of level design for gameplay elements and well written dialogue make his work an example to follow for budding game designers.

This is a cool story. This guy went around African embassies to promote Bitcoin:

Our next adoption phase
Much has been talked about the early adopter advantage while in fact we are not even in that stage yet. We’re at the beginning of the innovator stage in the technology adoption lifecycle now. The early adopter phase is next. So we still have some say in who those future early adopters are going to be who are going to realize the early adopter advantage. I argue that the early adopters should be some of those who so far have been systematically disadvantaged, specifically people of small, poor nations, many of which can be found on the African continent.

Thanks for doing this but why don't you add this to Bitcoin press hits, notable sources because it already has a sticky. I had to search through posts the other day because I wanted to reread one of your postings. It would be better if it can’t get lost.

You think that's a good idea? I didn't want to annoy people by spamming that thread because it seems more geared towards mainstream news. Even this thread I was worried might be spammy but the moderators told me it was fine.

Thank you Smiley It is nice to know people appreciate my works. Feel free to suggest things you want to know about or what type articles you like best in this thread.

Also people should give me a poke if they want to write something. I'm dominating this a bit too much :p

Warning: BTC-E compromised
I have identified a critical flaw on BTC-E that allows unhindered access to accounts. I recommend people to stop all trading on BTC-E now.
By Patrick Strateman (phantomcircuit)

Fear and loathing in Bitcoin world, why is there so much volatility?
As most everyone already knows by now, some currencies are more volatile than others. The volatility comes from out-of-balance market actions. That is, during some precisely defined window of time, there are more people wanting to sell than there are potential buyers, and vice versa. Sometimes these imbalances are exaggerated, which then manifests as rapid decline or appreciation of exchange rates of said currency.
By Topi Kanerva (topi)

Bitcoinica Legal Complaint
parapipan has filed a legal complaint against the Spanish authorities. The complaint is that their legal status is unknown and requests for providing information are left unanswered.

[libbitcoin] First 500 blocks
libbitcoin is a toolkit based library and can be leveraged with different design patterns depending on the task or application. Previously we examined using libbitcoin using an active object pattern. In this example we will use an imperative style program to connect to a bitcoin node and download the first 500 blocks.

BTC-Hospital Saves Me
That guy on the bitcoin forums literally saved me from crippling injury in a few years time. Had I not spoke to him, it may have been too late before I got it checked out. I always kept putting it off since I'm so busy and it didn't seem like a big deal.
