Wall Street is jumping into bitcoin in a big way: ".... the New York Stock Exchange invested in Coinbase; regulators have approved public trading on the Digital Currency Group’s Bitcoin Investment Trust; former J.P. Morgan Chase & Co. executive Blythe Masters became CEO of a new digital-asset settlement service; and news broke on Monday that former NYSE CEO Duncan Niederauer will work as an adviser to bitcoin derivatives platform TeraExchange."

And there are many more former big bank execs that have bailed on the federal reserve system and started bitcoin companies than what this article mentions. 
Nasdaq is powering a new digital currency marketplace.

If something called "BitchCoin" doesn't already exist, someone should invent it. It could reward the best criticism, complaining, and trolling, or "bitching." The "ch" in bitchcoin that sets it apart from "bitcoin" could always be in background colored text. :)

Awesome! Bringing 3D printing to the next level with conductive traces within 3D printed objects. Or in other words, embedded circuits.

For a tl;dr watch the video mid-way down. 
At CES 2015, one company within the 3D printing space really stood out. Their name was Voxel8, and what they had come up with had the international media buzzin

Good. I think that bitcoin will defeat the Fed's runaway inflation, but I don't think it will defeat their ability to steal, overall. The amounts they can steal using the IRS and other "enforcement arms" are almost as great as the amounts which can be stolen via inflation. (Perhaps not quite. I'd be willing to be corrected here, if someone understands the actual numbers and systems a lot better than I do. Certainly, the vast majority of the theft of the past 100 years has been via inflation, but automated systems have largely outpaced the system of inflation. Also, as inflation occurs, it diminishes the value of the labor that's being stolen.)

This will bring currency stability to something that actually has value, making the labor of their slaves more valuable, and making society as a whole more productive, as the dollar is transitioned away from. It will also eliminate a lot of "intermediary" parasites, who will then find themselves in the position of being preyed upon. This is perhaps a better situation than the one we now inhabit, so I'm all for it, but I'm not as excited about bitcoin as many others are.

Bitcoin, to be truly valuable, must be thought of as "an alternative to widespread false-authority-legitimized theft." I don't think this is the case now, and I don't think it will be the case in the future, because it's too easy to get excited by the trivial and short-term. The central bankers, on the other hand, think long-term, as they should.

Definitely a step in the right direction but it's hard for me to get too excited about because it still treats business between consenting adults as a granted "privilege".

So sad...we used to love this place. But they've really gone down hill. I think that as their business dwindles they cut corners and it shows. Just gave them another chance because of a Groupon and they tried not to accept it- said I needed the printed Groupon, that the one on my phone wasnt good enough. Very rude and adament about it too. Last time we'll be coming in.
