"If you're long-winded, then maybe you shouldn't type so much. If you're brusque, then God bless you. Don't change anything. Despite any evidence to the contrary in these columns, we're fervently pro-brusque. As far as we're concerned, brusqueness is a key part of the engine of commerce."

"Dollars are valuable because they're the official medium of exchange for the $14 trillion US economy; euros and yen are valuable for similar reasons.

But we'll suggest an alternative explanation: that Bitcoin is not so much an alternative currency as a "metacurrency" that allows low- cost and regulation-free transfer of wealth between nations. In other words, Bitcoin's major competitors aren't national currencies, but wire-transfer services like Western Union."

"Prospero is a prototype for a larger, singular robotic organism that Dourhout is working toward in his spare time (he’s an entomologist by trade and a roboticist by hobby, which makes him very good at his hobby).
