Bitcoins

are complex to understand, true, but they are simple to use. How many people know exactly how car engines and transmissions work? Yet millions drive cars.

I sent Michael Nystrom a bitcoin directly in a few seconds, making a few clicks, for his Daily Paul fundraiser. Meanwhile all the other donors were struggling to pay via PayPal (involving fees) or checks in snail mail, or other slow means.

I agree with your last line, though ;)

Edit: I also agree with not thinking of Bitcoin as an investment.
