I'll beg to differ.
Often, people who aren't aware of all the technical internals are able to explain things in simpler ways.

There's a reason why engineering and sales are different jobs Cheesy

I mean that the creator will have to show somewhere to speak publicly... An interview would be nice.
A lot of people would like to see the face of the creator. People generally put more trust in things that have a "face" behind them.

Yes, you're certainly right about that.
I'd like to see an interview of satoshi, then again, satisfying my curiosity and explaining bitcoins to my wife are two very different things Smiley

I completely disagree.

It will never be good for bitcoin PR, if the creators never show anywhere. The truth is nobody can catch the concept & explain the idea better than the creator...

I completely disagree. Often these simplifications completely misrepresent the product or result in descriptions which are so vague that nobody can understand the product.

There should be laws such that 99% of commercials are forbidden, because they suggest all kinds of things that are easily falsified in a lab. Take the Windows operating system for example. _All_ versions have been marketed as if they are secure operating systems. Sometimes they used the phrase "more secure", which doesn't mean a whole lot. The fact is that all operating systems released by Microsoft contain fatal flaws. In an ideal world consumers should be able to return the product even if just one marketed claim doesn't hold up.

Yes, it's because the sales people never needed to develop real skills.
