I believe Bitcoin Releases Version 0.3 (July 2010) was the first such Slashdot story.  I can't speak for Jeff but this is when I first started playing with Bitcoin.

Based on the date my original forum account was registered, I'm pretty sure that was the story that got me interested in Bitcoin as well.

It definitely was Amir Taaki as Genjix on poker forums. He used to play.

He was telling people to buy bitcoin but unfortunately for him(and lots of others including me somewhat) he sold his coins ultra cheap a very long time ago. Not sure where he stands now, but he was living in an abandoned building not too long ago. Sad

Hopefully his situation has improved.

He's probably doing very well with DW's success.

yup. this is true. i also heard some of his traveling adventures in asia(?) where he ran out of money and had to borrow from his poker player buddies.  his best friend in the poker world is 'stealcity', if stealcity stuck with genjix all these years, getting involved and funding his projects i would think he will become a billionaire too.  for a young guy stealcity has a lot of cash as he was a highstakes poker player.
