Download Link | Mirror 1 (AnonFiles) | Read it on Scribd

Quote
Publication Date: August 15, 2001 | ISBN-10: 1580532683 | ISBN-13: 978-1580532686 | Edition: 2 Sub
Generally society has been moving towards electronic payment systems since the 1970s, but it is only the arrival of the Internet and its vertiginous growth, that has made possible the recent advances in this area.

For the unaware, this book basically describes Bitcoin years before Bitcoin itself even existed, and many claim that the authors, or one amongst them, may be the mysterious and elusive Satoshi Nakamoto. The reasons behind making this book digital and free are several:

1) The book is no longer in print, and it is both expensive and hard to find. This makes it more accessible to the masses.

2) Hopefully this book will aid people in understanding some of the features of bitcoin, and help others in thinking up new and innovative features and technologies.

3) The text of the book could be cross-analysed with the writings of Satoshi Nakamoto to determine if the writing styles match up, which may lead to a match on the identity of Mr. Nakamoto. Software like JGAAP (http://evllabs.com/jgaap/w/index.php/Main_Page) could be used to accomplish this.

4) Seeing as the book is out of print, and it was never a bestseller anyways, it is unlikely that the authors will suffer negative financial repercussions from this text being made public. It is our belief that information should be free.

Keeping in line with the decentralized nature of bitcoin, please re-host, re-share, and re-upload.

Thank you! Fixed in OP.

If anyone can recommend other file hosts I will create mirrors of the download. If there's one where it can be viewable in the browser, without download, I'll do that as well.

After reading another topic (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=215412.0), I realize that asking people to download files on here is somewhat sketchy! Here is a direct link to view it in-browser: https://cdn.anonfiles.com/1369492145562.pdf - although its 90MB, so it takes a while to finish loading.

Thanks for sharing. It seems pretty obvious that Satoshi Nakamoto is either among the authors of this book or was inspired by reading it. In either case, this book is a gem as the source of the ideas that gave rise to Bitcoin.

Hitesh Tewari and Donal O'Mahony also co-authored an article Performance Analysis of Cryptographic Protocols on Handheld Devices ( http://www.tara.tcd.ie/jspui/bitstream/2262/17160/1/Performance%20analysis.pdf ), which lends even more credibility to the idea that either of them (or both) could be Satoshi.

You're quite welcome. And that is compelling indeed. Smiley

Is the donation address to you? I wonder how Professor O'Mahony and colleagues feel about their work being released like this.

Either way, I'm looking it over now. I've wanted to take a look at this book for a while now, and it's even more implicating than I thought it would be.

Satoshi is very likely to have come from Trinity I think.

Donal O’Mahony's 1st job was in Tokyo Japan

https://www.scss.tcd.ie/donal.omahony/

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Satoshi from Pokémon
Takashi Nakamoto, from Yu-Gi-Oh!
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------



Donal O'Mahony graduated with first class honours in Engineering from Trinity College Dublin in 1982. His first job was with SORD Computer Corporation in Japan and Dublin. Sord was a Japanese startup company with aspirations to displace Apple as the then leader in micro-computers. O'Mahony served as their operating system specialist, working with CP/M, CP/M-86, the UCSD P-System, Sord's proprietary operating system and the emerging MS-DOS. A brief exposure to the new IBM PC in late 1982 caused him to go to work with IBM Ireland helping to launch the original IBM PC. He was recruited by Trinity College as a lecturer in Computer Science in 1984 where he later completed a PhD in the area of software reusability.

Around 1990, he set up the Networks & Telecommunications Research Group which did pioneering work in the esablishment of the global X.500 directory service (initially implemented over an academic X.25 network infrastructure called IXI) and in using the system in a wide variety of applications including a pre-web form of electronic commerce. In 1988, when Local Area Networks were beginning to appear on the mass-market, he published a textbok with Prentice-Hall publishers entitled Local Area Networks and their Applications which became a best-seller in this emerging field and was subsequently published in Japanese, Polish as well as in a low-cost edition for the Indian market. . His research group took part in the Cordless Business Communication (COBUCO) European project in 1996 which aimed to produce a demonstrator for the emerging 3G mobile cellular system. This experience led the group to develop a vision for 4G systems that eschewed traditional cellular architectures for a more interenet-like system that provides seamless mobility, end-to-end security across a network operated by very many competing nework operator. This vision is still being actively pursued today.

The group has also been very active in the development of novel security protocols, in particular in Electronc Payment and in 1997, he and two of his research students published Electronic Payment Systems with Artech House. This book became the leading text in this area, went to 2nd edition, and was awarded a 'best seller in class" award by Amazon.Com in 2000.

In 1998/99, O'Mahony was awarded a Fulbright scholarship to spend a sabbatical year at Stanford, California. In addition to his research work at Stanford he became involved with the very active technology entrepreneurship programme. He started a web company called LetterPost.Com in late 1998. A business plan was developed in conjunction with a colleague and entered into Stanford Entrepreneur's E-Challenge where it was repeatedly subjected to the scrutiny of judges from the Sand Hill road venture capital community and reached the final of the competition. O'Mahony continued as CEO of letterpost.com until it was acquired by the Escher Group in 2000.

O'Mahony is a senior member of the IEEE and was made a fellow of Trinity College in May 2000

Some food for thought, but what are the chances, do you think, that the man in that picture has ever watched either Pokémon or Yu-Gi-Oh? Heck, I used to watch both of those shows when I was younger, and I was unaware of either a Satoshi or a Nakamoto in either one.

Not that this disproves your theory, both seem to be somewhat common names in Japan.

This would be similar to trying to analyze comedy.

The name was chosen to be obtuse.  Clever, but obtuse.

And he was 30 years younger when he was in Tokyo, just out of school.  Not the old guy in the photo.

Satoshi was only used as the character's name in Japan.  It was Ash Ketchum everywhere else.
