I guest-blogged the following article about bitcoin in V3 Integrated Marketing's blog. The head honcho at V3 is the well-known social media marketer Shelly Kramer http://twitter.com/shellykramer , who is a friend of mine on Twitter (my handle: http://twitter.com/joecascio ). I think it's noteworthy that non-techie blogs are starting to pick up on bitcoin interest. I'm hoping to write other articles for Shelly in the future.

I think this is the first use of the slogan "Cash At A Distance" to describe bitcoin.

By the way, you'll note that one of the commenters is named "FellowTraveler". I think this may be the guy who created OpenTransactions, which is a very nice complement to bitcoin. https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Open_Transactions He points out that bitcoin is not completely anonymous as it stands, which is quite correct. I think, though, that to the common user, it requires more technical acumen and wherewithal than they possess to do the traffic analysis required to traceback a bitcoin transaction to a real person.

Your comments are very welcome!

That's quite an intriguing article. I think that if it gets more publicity, it will really help spur interest in bitcoins among average citizens. Thanks for the link and I hope to read more from you in the future!

I think it was a good article, but I did have some issues with some of the terms, just cause the target is marketing people and probably not the most computer savvy people...

should be Bitcoin address cause that is the client and all the community calls it

also when you talk about it being central another great point would have been that is that you could hold all the transactions making you the bank. I do like the virtual mattress part thou.

overall i give it a 5 or 6 it is descent article hopefully people read that explore it a little more nice job.
