By the way, I am Irish by blood and support the complete freedom of Ireland from their overlord masters. Just provoking you a bit and helping you sharpen your skills. Also I hope Ireland gets back its balls and does something. Yeah dieing suck, knowing your child will be a slave sucks more...

Don't worry mate, it's easy to differentiate racism from harmless provocation.
I would not have spent all that time replying to you otherwise.

Anywho, I don't want to drag this topic any further OT.
Thanks for the stimulating discussion.

If an Irish town wished to declare independence from Ireland, would that be okay? What about a certain neighborhood within that town? Or what about an individual person - may she declare independence from Ireland, and the town, and be free to live on her own land?

I want to see if your reasoning is consistent.

Getting back on topic...

Here are a couple articles that followed on from the New Yorker one:

Bitcoin shows the value of not depending on its maker

The Bitcoin Crypto-Currency Mystery Reopened
BY Adam PenenbergTue Oct 11, 2011
http://www.fastcompany.com/1785445/crypto-currency-mystery


I like the point the first one makes. Bitcoin does not, should not, rely on any one personality or group. 
Satoshi was probably making the same point by choosing to remain anonymous.
It is, at least partly, about moving away from centralized systems, and cults of personality, and kings and presidents, etc. 
to decentralized systems.

Bitcoin uses existing cryptography algorithms so I guess Satoshi didn't need to be a cryptography expert? Or do we know for sure Satoshi was?

Another relevant article from the Irish Times:

Quote
Let's be Clear: I didn't invent Bitcoin
DAVIN O'DWYER

WHEN POLITICIANS and business leaders talk about the need to create a knowledge economy, they probably don’t mean our brightest and best should go out and literally create a new economy using their knowledge. But that is exactly what the New Yorker magazine this week accused a Trinity College student of doing, in a lengthy article on the virtual currency Bitcoin.

There's been a lot of posts and threads deleted in the last few days. Is somebody cleaning house. For an example, search Michael Clear, and you'll only find this thread, although there were 2-3 threads related to him at the beginning of the month.

You mean this thread or this for instance? (there are more) What looks like a cs is most likely just the inabillity to build a proper search index.
