"I loved the web the moment I saw it"
"I first stumbled upon Bitcoin in 2009"
"Bitcoin is ridiculous. It’s a prank"
"Bitcoin will crash because of course it will."
This is what Bloomberg parades as insightful analysis, and spot the, "I saw it first but said meh". Desperation!
The author of that piece claims to be able to predict the future, but could not see that Bitcoin was revolutionary, despite claiming to have personally experienced Flooz and early internet attempts at this hard problem. This is why no one trusts Bloomberg or MSM journalism.
This "journalist" is for the "right to be forgotten" as he explains in "UnGoogle Me: The Case for Scrubbing Search Results". Thankfully, Bitcoin will permanently de-fang the Paul Ford's of this world, and render their already threadbare influence totally inert.
The Brooklyn Hipster, "Why does anyone on earth need Bitcoin when they can get an account with Chase in 5mins?" parochial, passportless insular and ignorant view of the world is not the default. Bitcoin can't care about these people and they are a tiny, irrelevant minority.
The fact that Bitcoin exists shows that what these types do doesn't matter. They don't create anything, change nothing, and are content cattle like the Eloi from H.G. Wells "The Time Machine". Without Bitcoin, they would be a problem. Now, they're not. They are LULZ.
