Forbes: 5 things to learn from Bitcoin, Innovation

A writer on Forbes on bitcoin and innovation: 4. Self-publishing an innovative paper on the Internet can have enormous impact. In the university environment, where I work, the assumption is often that the only worthy papers are those that have been through a peer review process, even when that means years of delay. In some fields—for example, medicine—peer review remains essential to protecting the public. But in many areas of technology, the delays involved in traditional academic publishing don’t confer any public safety benefit, and they often mean…

Better still, the number of people holding any Bitcoins at all has soared from 350,000 to more than 2 million.

Forbes picks up on the Mining Wars: Nvidia Is About To Steal The Cryptocurrency Mining Crown From AMD

(confer however with the ati curse mentioned earlier regarding the 750ti) and as my friend pointed out, with a high tier maxwell in the wings, it may be that the cost savings would not make up for capital switch costs til we have an idea of the maxwell high tier data.

Forbes: A $100 Worth Of Litecoin A Year Ago Is Worth $30,000 Today

I don't usually do disclosures, but for the sake of it, I do have litecoins, and I've recently gotten a mining rig (small addition). I must say that the great increase has greatly helped me in getting this site up and running, I might have had to throw in the towel earlier otherwise. I'm not a millionaire, I'm very very far from that, but like Charles Lee, ““I’m sure there are Litecoin millionaires out there,” says Lee, indicating he’s not one of them. I would have to say, they…
