I pinky-swear on a stack of bibles I haven't heard a peep from Satoshi.
Whatever he/she/they have been busy doing, I guess he/she/they're still busy doing it. Or maybe doobadoo is Satoshi and is trying to misdirect us....
Thanks for jumping in Gavin. Do you think Satoshi had/has a serious amount of bitcoin? Maybe millions of coins? If so maybe he wanted to remain anonymous because he's just so dam smart that he KNEW this thing would take off right from the get-go and didn't want to pay any taxes on it. That would be consistent with the political views that motivated what he created.
He probably sold a out of some of his hoard and wired it to an offshore account and is now sipping frozen daiquiries on a beautiful beach somewhere. I really hope so, it would really suck if he worked so hard to create this and then blew out before it got over $1.
Satoshi if you are out there, send us a sign! Let us know if you're out there ballin' in up. If so, please generate another block with an embedded message. One that could only come from you. I'll be watching block explorer for it!
