Same here. I had completely given up on the EFF, even after they sent the mail confirming that they would do this. Mega surprise!

I bet the recent increase in valuations made them crave bitcoins all the more! I mean, when we made the original donations, Bitcoins were only at 6 cents each.

Totally awesome. Donation sent. Thanks to those who worked to make this possible.

Also, this should make it possible to get Bitcoin back on Wikipedia.

I would just like to thank Kiba for starting this . If you want to show your appreciation join his Mutual Aid association  http://fivegrinder.com/group/Bitcoin Mutual Aid Association and also his new project  http://www.soulplaying.com/ .

I urge everyone to support what he is doing .

I'm already donating to them in USD but I'm very happy to see them taking bitcoins, so I sent them a BTC donation to show them we mean it. Smiley

... getting bitcoin back on wikipedia.
I got a reply from the guy who deleted the Wikipedia article.

He pointed to the procedure for undeleting articles, and mentioned that the Bitcoin article has already been through that procedure twice but the appeals were rejected because Bitcoin doesn't have enough respectable mainstream coverage. I think that the Wikipedia criteria are not well-structured to non-mainstream topics, but that's how it is.

One major way that commercial enterprises get mainstream coverage is by issuing a press release, which gets picked up and re-hashed by all kinds of publications that Wikipedia respects. So if anyone knows someone who can write an effective press release in the standard format, it would be a great idea.

Of course a press release needs a subject, but "Bitcoin Economy Passes $1 Million" would do just fine.

 I came up with a list of press release sites awhile ago for bitcoinmedia.

* Write up a press release about bitcoin and distribute it to some of the bazillion free PR services eg
http://www.free-press-release.com/
http://www.prlog.org/
http://www.pr.com/press-releases

Here is a list of 50 such sites
http://www.avangate.com/articles/press-release-distribution_69.htm


If someone wants to write something I will spend a few days registering and posting it. Wish someone could write a script that submitted to all of them at once lol.

No need to send it to all of them. The three that you listed is plenty. Any journalist who follows releases distributed on free sites will find them.

They key is to get the release written right. The journalist needs to be able to see at a glance that it's newsworthy and reliable. If the journalist has to come to the website and spend a few hours working out what it's all about, they're unlikely to bother.
