We talk about the possible 'licensed generator' attack on the bitcoin infrastructure.  Restricting the block chain to generators who have gained a government sponsored licence... This way the government could dictate rules about what transactions can be included in the chain, and what should be rejected.  We then go on to talk about how such an attack is very hard to pull of and would take a huge amount of resources.

The second part of the show we talk about other attacks on bitcoin and brig up the BtcFn project:

We talk about Freenet and a possible sneakernet based upon it.

Overall I had a great time, and was very please to promote Bitcoin and Freenet!

One off NP-Hard.
