This might be off topic. My apologies.

We know the time of Satoshi's posts, right? With different sets of assumptions, this time distribution could be used to generate a set of activity profiles...ie, if we assume he posts during evening hours most often, and didn't move frequently, his post time stamps suggest his time zone was...

This was done years ago.  The most likely time zone is Eastern US.

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."

So... you are saying Langley?  Grin

Not impossible.

I find it extremely unlikely Satoshi to be RMS, since rms has long ago abandoned programming but instead try to tell people about Free Software, meaning he should have not gotten enough time to focus on Bitcoin, even less programming. Also in what language did Satoshi write the code? Was it not c++? Also look for any references of rms to that language.

As the author of GCC, how do you view the future of C,
in view of modern,
or more modern, languages like C++ or Java?
Well, C++ is a lousy language.
[laughter]
It's
a lousy job of language design; sloppy job of language design.
[applause]
Its grammar is ambiguous!

Also note that Bitcoin is not branded with a GNU. It is neither called GNUcoin, though it sounds catchy doesn't it? "New Coin".

There may still be hope for the 1st decentralized cryptocurrency which is Bitcoin. How to approach different subjects is key to progress.

Stallman eats his own Toe Jam (not kidding, he does it http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I25UeVXrEHQ ) so I wouldn't want to be associated with that guy, and I wouldn't want bitcoin to be associated with him. People would call it Toebitcoin or something, Really Gross!

In fact, I would not be surprised. Imagine how easy it would be to send funds to agents behind enemy lines when there's enough local traders. Smiley

Satoshi develop on window?  Shocked

I would appear so and he also used the term "open source" both of which would eliminate RMS as Satoshi.

RMS actually dislikes C++ and I think stuff like that matters to him.
That, to me, is proof that he didn't code it.

If RMS were Satoshi, the client code would be better.

Exactly right.

Among other reasons why it can't be Stallman, you merely have to read some of Stallman's code to see it could not be him. RMS has a VERY distinctive code style that is unmistakable.

I still think the triumvirate of Neal King, Vladimir Oksman, and Charles Bry is the most likely hypothesis to date, though Michael clear might be an outside possibility. All of these appear more likely candidates than Stallman.

This video was uploaded at the same time when Bitcoin was launched in Feb 2009:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SNBMdDaYhZA&t=1h1m4s

Watch the next 2 minutes after the linked time. 1:02:45 is where it's at. Have we found our man?

First, and most important, the original Bitcoin client is MIT-licensed, which makes it very unlikely to be Stallman.  Next, the client is written in C+, which is not a favored language of old school hackers of the Richard Stallman school (C is).  On a related note, C++ is very much the language of academic and researcher types, which makes me think that Satoshi is probably a professor or some other academic or researcher.

A far better candidate that RMS for the following reasons:
1) He would develop on Windows
2) He would refer to FLOSS as "Open Source"
3) He would not use a copyleft license such as the GPL, but has no problem at all using an open source license such as the MIT license

If RMS were Satoshi, the client code would be better.

And it would be written in Emacs LISP.  XD

If all the sovereign non-cryptocurrencies will eventually collapse from hyperinflation, you can't afford *not* to invest in Bitcoin...  See my blog at http://minetopics.blogspot.com/ .
