I bet 1 BTC that he is a damn skiddie. Also, he doesn't know shit, so this is really stupid interview. His understanding is that he is making a BOINC contribution and that no one knows how it works or the result. Also in his POV public-key cryptography is a one way process. I invite everyone to troll him. It is worth the lolz. He also doesn't like Bitcoin, he only knows he can sell them.

I thought it was a good interview of an average bitcoin user/miner.  There are a lot of people like him trying to mine/understand/sell bitcoins.  He didn't say anything wrong, really, and did point out he didn't understand all of it.
