The old message forum was created by Satoshi Nakamoto in 2009. The very first bitcoin transaction was negotiated on the BitcoinTalk forum– 10,000 BTC for some pizza.

Their numbers are down by nearly a third in one month. Google Trends Search Interest in Bitcoin Declines The decline in outbound referral links to Bitcointalk
