BitCoins are too much in use to ever really go down in value for any length of time now that China is in the game.

They've dropped steadily for most of 2014, though. One could argue that that all of that was still correcting the bubble in late 2013, but that correction has lasted well over a year now. There hasn't really been a good time to hold on to Bitcoin since then, with a few short-term exceptions.

While his original idea has some sound points, the ideological militancy with which he pursues it does more harm to free software than good at this point. BSD-style licenses are not the enemy of free software.

Shunning BSD goes far beyond attacking non-free software; it's shunning free software proponents who don't shun non-free software. What's next, refusing to work with developers who also contribute to BSD projects? Refusing to work with developers who don't refuse to work with those developers? Take that far enough and you're basically on your own.

Life is a whim of several billion cells to be you for a while.
