Ellen Hearts Bitcoin

TV favorite Ellen DeGeneris recently expressed her liking for Bitcoin, and did a quick "bit" about the concept - comparing Bitcoin to an adorable baby goat that only exists on the Internet (it makes more sense in context).

While it was a brief presentation - and of course done mainly for laughs - it did a nice job of giving a non-threatening 30,000 foot view of a concept that baffles most mere mortals among us to a big TV audience. 

Plus, coming from Ellen - who has a large female audience - maybe it will create some interest and bring some more young women into the fold of technology, where they are still woefully under-represented.

By the way, does anyone else of my generation think that Ellen is the new, hip version of Bob Newhart?
