I'll stick with his opinion about the network security, not about the political implications of Bitcoin.

Dan Kaminsky verdict: The network is robust at the lower level. It can scale. Entire classes of bugs are missing. An exploit would be discovered years ago in the beginning. The C++ language was a good choice, if Satoshi knew what he was doing. And there's interesting work to be done.

I can't imagine him being a single person. If he/she is, must be the Newton of our age.
The nice thing is that maybe 10-20 years from now, when Bitcoin will be used in all major institutions as a world wide currency, he can get out and tell us his (or their) story, and he will be able to prove he is who he claims to be because he can sign a message with the key used to create the genesis block.
