Andreessen mission statement for bitcoin in NYTimes

A Broc Romanek tweet this morning gave me the link to this piece:

http://dealbook.nytimes.com/2014/01/21/why-bitcoin-matters/

It's by Marc Andreessen, the venture capitalist whose firm includes Chris Dixon, which is investing heavily in developing a bitcoin ecosystem.

I like this piece because it's the first overview I've heard or read that makes an intelligible case for why bitcoin makes a better means of facilitating the many small transactions which make up an economy.

After reading Andreessen's piece, I've decided I want to try participating. I don't think I want to trade in from another currency; I think I'd rather sell a product or service for bitcoin.

Now to go find the QR code app that Andreessen says makes checking out at Target fraud-free.
