Wow, these people obviously don't like bitcoin by the seems of things. Some of them definitely seem to have their minds set on their opinions  that is for sure.

Most people are just simply misinformed by mainstream media and intimidated by the nerdyness. I tell my friends the internet never shrinks, the intetent of everything is real. Even money....

The media completely controls most people's way of thinking depending on how they feel like filtering and conveying news and developments.  It really is a shame that the general public cannot get unbiased news...  I believe Al Jazeeer (spelling?) was trying to do "real" news, but I don't know whatever happened to that...

I would say that positive coverage of bitcoin in the media has greatly increased over the past 1 year.

"...But Ready says betting on bitcoin now is a lot like betting on mobile commerce three or four years ago. People shopping on their phones back then was a very small part of the online shopping market. But that percentage has grown, and Braintree was able to ride that wave to its current success. Coinbase has only 1.6 million users compared to PayPal’s 150 million, according to figures from both companies."

Pretty sure most Averages Joes have quickly forgotten about bitcoin.  It used to get a mention in the finance report on ABC TV here in Australia when the price approached, exceeded, then fell below USD$1000, but now it never gets mentioned.

Maybe if the price rises again it will feature for another fifteen minutes in the popular imagination?

I went to buy a motorcycle... private deal.. asked the guy if he by chance accepted Bitcoin. He immediately thought I was trying to scam him and got mad and said CASH ONLY. I said a LOT of people use bitcoin and i was only asking. He wasn't impressed. haha
