The guy who invented it is really a genius - Edison is nothing next to him Smiley

If Satoshi is, in fact, a single individual, then he is a polymath.  The breath of professional grade knowledge required to produce this, and the rather sudden manner in which it just sprung onto the Interent in 2009, leads me to assume that Satoshi isn't likely to be a single person, IMHO, any more so than LulSec would be.

"The powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent meetings and conferences. The apex of the systems was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world's central banks which were themselves private corporations. Each central bank...sought to dominate its government by its ability to control Treasury loans, to manipulate foreign exchanges, to influence the level of economic activity in the country, and to influence cooperative politicians by subsequent economic rewards in the business world."
