In an attempt to preserve the history of bitcoin, I am trying to archive Satoshi's correspondence with members of this forum. I've created an email address:

satoshiarchive@gmail.com

If satoshi ever emailed you about Bitcoin or anything else you feel comfortable sharing, then please send a copy to the above address. I assume you verified his identity Smiley

Thanks everyone for being part of history. You guys moved mountains.

Please note that your correspondence will become part of the open domain and will be eventually published in a format similar to a searchable wiki or in lectures for our crowdsourced course.

If there is anything that you would like omitted from the archiving process, then please encase the text in <OMIT>,</OMIT> tags.

I think it'd be interesting to get all of Satoshi's known writings and archive them in one location in chronological order.

It would be a good idea to backup and archive this whole forum, since the beginning. History of bitcoin is here. This forum contains the information about how a new currency has born and gained value from 0

Once his writings have been collected, it would be neat for someone to distill the best parts into a book covering the history of bitcoin (maybe team up with a professional writer?). I would definitely find it an interesting read. I have a feeling we will look back on Satoshi and bitcoin in the same way we look back at the start of the world wide web and Tim Berners-Lee or Linux and Linus Torvalds. Truly a fascinating development in the history of the information age.

Good idea. I assume that's the first one.. how about uploading a torrent somewhere, so it won't get lost?

What I find fascinating is that this was released 6 weeks after the GFC08 hit. Although "I had to write all the code before I could convince myself that I could solve every problem, then I wrote the paper. " "I believe I've worked through all those little details over the
last year and a half while coding it, and there were a lot of them."

I would be surprised if 10 years from now we're not using
electronic currency in some way, now that we know a way to do it
that won't inevitably get dumbed down when the trusted third party
gets cold feet.

It might make sense just to get some in case it catches on.  If
enough people think the same way, that becomes a self fulfilling
prophecy.  Once it gets bootstrapped, there are so many
applications if you could effortlessly pay a few cents to a
website as easily as dropping coins in a vending machine.

I've been writing a web scraper for bitcointalk to pull out all of satsohi's 500 or some posts, but I obviously can't get access to emails, which I suspect the real meat exists. I'll repost this thread every week to keep people aware of the effort and when our webpage is up, we'll have a section for Satoshi.

Don't forget that some of his posts are in the area reachable only with extended privileges (like mods and admins).

Which is why I'm making this very public. I really would like a child board for the history of bitcoin. We could collectively could run it and make a serious effort to ensure the history isn't lost.

Unfortunately I don't have anything to contribute.
I'm one of the oldest members of this board and actually had the chance to communicate with Satoshi, but all this communication was via forum posts.

If you want to know more about what kind of a person he was (and propably still is) and what his ideals and ideas for bitcoin have been, I recommend to read his forum posts, beginning with the oldest:
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=3;sa=showPosts;start=520
(don't expect any personal stuff, it's mostly dev talk, but you see what he thought bitcoin should be like)

Thank you for this. Smoke PM me. I'd like to have a convo about the history of bitcoin. You've been here a long time so I figure you probably have a few things to say.

There was an elder forum on bitcoin.org. At least there are references to it in Satoshi's posts.

i think that forum moved, with all its posts and stuff, from bitcoin.org to bitcointalk.org.

this is a really good idea.  It would be good to have a website with keyword tags then you could instantly search for what satoshi thought about <topic> and hyperlink all the different topics (like hashtags)

You might want to independently email some of the devs - or post on the bitcoin-dev mailing list, but probably a good idea to try and prototype the hosting system to demonstrate you're serious about this.
