I thought reaching out to Bruce would be a good idea --> http://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=3603.0

I think he's the type to embrace, and provide thoughtful insight on bitcoin.  He did write Applied Cryptography (crypto bible)  --> http://www.schneier.com/book-applied.html

I used his above book for creating a series of public key cryptography java objects back in the university days (before java offered a crypto class).

Bruce strikes me as the type to question the status quo.  Search for Bruce Schneier and tsa on youtube.

Bruce is too busy and too public to be Satoshi. Bruce has just too much going on in his life to have the time to come up with groundbreaking cryptocurrency systems  Grin

I sent Bruce an email about Bitcoin back in September.  If he reads his email, he is aware of Bitcoin.  I never had any response.

"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."

Don't be so sure about that, Satoshi hasn't been very involved for months.
