I barely just heard of some strange new form of currency called the 'Bitcoin.'
Anyone heard of it? Apparently there are already several sites that accept this form of currency or convert to real currency. There's even a website that lists the exchange rates for several different currencies.
The strangest thing about it is that bitcoins come from nothing. You get them by running a program on your computer which lends your processing power to bitcoins transactions. (With people who lend the most processing power receiving the most bitcoins.)
Also, there is a Wikipedia article...
