Interesting read indeed. What other coins are your working on right now? I was thinking a piece about Vertcoin might be interesting because of the hype it got these last few days with its 1500% move (and it seems to answer to one of your criteria : hardware decentralization).
Anyway i always check back on that thread to see if there is update. Of course it is biased, but that's like the other 100% of the analysis out there.
