Club members have been working on projects like a social network to help teenagers quickly organize study groups and a trading network for Bitcoin, a virtual currency. They have brainstormed ideas for mobile geolocation games and new kinds of grocery store scanners.

I saw that too, but decided not to mention it here, because the article is not about bitcoin, just about a bunch of kids that want to start a business. Bitcoin is only mentioned with one word and thats it.
I would delete the thread from this forum if it was my decision.

Yeah, most teens don't really think about money, just about the stuff they are conditioned to buy. It is pretty amazing that younguns even get what Bitcoin is about.

Any significantly advanced cryptocurrency is indistinguishable from Ponzi Tulips.

I think singular mentions in mainstream publications are still noteworthy as it gives an idea of how Bitcoin is perceived.
It's interesting to note whether the word bitcoin is mentioned in an 'off the cuff' manner, or as a more extraordinary item requiring explanation.

That aside, it's interesting in itself that a group of school-goers is setting up a trading system for Bitcoin apparently without raising negative commentary - and also that 'venture capitalists drop by' to their meetings.

I ignore plenty of Bitcoin blogs etc which appear to be from within the community, and even some external mentions that are just boring repeats of security-related stuff - but I'd prefer items like this one to be noted here, and I hope some others who frequent this thread  agree.

I agree with julz. Any mentions of Bitcoin in a non-Bitcoin site are always welcome.
