Weekend Chillout - Bits and Pieces

Well this week has been blown to bits with pieces on bitcoin. I have admission to make - after a couple of years of reading about bitcoin and coming to understand somewhat the maths behind how the coins are "created" and authenticated, I never really got the hype around why they were so much better than any other currency. Until this week. This week I read a few articles about merchant acceptance, the growing use in China and lastly this article - combined they have finally sparked the light bulb in my head, "now I get it" ~ god I am getting slow in my old age.
