Bitcoin Magazine just posted my article Why Charles Stross Doesn’t Know a Thing about Bitcoin. It’s a response to one of my favorite SF authors, Charles Stross, who recently wrote a piece called Why I Want Bitcoin to Die in a Fire. It got picked up by Reddit and Slashdot, as well as quoted by Paul Krugman in a piece for the NY Times blog called Bitcoin is Evil. While I really admire his SF, his article is typical of a lot of popular posts on the subject that completely miss the point on why Bitcoin is a profound technological breakthrough and a revolutionary system of commerce.
