Gawker has a profile of Ross Ulbricht, the architect of online market Silk Road. As noted yesterday, the downfall of Silk Road, alleged to have been the hub of a global drug trafficking network, included the seizure of some 26,000 Bitcoins, worth about $3.6 million (the largest such seizure to date).
The indictment against Ulbricht can be found here.
USA Today has a piece today speculating on the potentially positive impact Silk Road's downfall and the seizure may have on the value of Bitcoins in the marketplace.
