Really interesting read. Gives you the behind the scenes look at the players involved in creating bitcoin and nursing it from a white-paper document to a real-life digital currency. The stories on the silk road website were pretty interesting too. Even if bitcoin never gets going on a mass-scale, you can bet the blockchain technology behind it will given its success. Just a matter of time until that technology starts to get implemented into a lot of day-to-day life tasks.
