I have some Verts, Litecoins and Darks.
True, hadn't thought of that. Well ambitious ideas are good. If nothing else there will certainly be lessons to learn for cryptocurrency as a whole.You bet! I agree, the biggest question in my mind is how they'll prevent massive blockchain bloat. Also, any contract related to something external (e.g. fiat currency values, who wins the world series, etc) is inherently vulnerable.

I haven't had a chance to delve into the white paper yet, but the idea with Etherium is that it comes with a built-in programming language, so you can embed code into your coin, which in turn is embedded into the blockchain.
Without looking into the whitepaper I'm pretty sure this could be exploited easily (easily as in "needs the better part of a rainy weekend worth of time").
Interesting. What kinds of exploits do you have in mind? Computers verifying transactions might have to run the code, so in theory it might be possible to use the block-chain to propagate malicious code. There are all kinds of ways to protect against that (depends on how/where the contracts are decrypted), and I'm sure the developers have considered it, but it's definitely a disturbing thought.
not sure. i think it (bitshares x) was supposed to be launched over a month ago but was delayed. i think they are still testing it. saw they were working on an anon feature too.That reminds me, I'm still holding bitshares. Are they even out yet?
