So I assume that this Nick Szabo that is being linked to with Satoshi Nakamoto is in his 50s or 60s now.

And I assume that water is wet.

We know how old he is!

Sorry to be a dick but people are playing detective on stuff that is already known. Lets look for some unknown stuff. Like who has this guy been working for the past three decades since college? That'd be interesting to learn.

Well sometimes, one must review all the facts before he starts delving into the unknown. Also, in the first place we aren't supposed to be playing detectives linking different people to Satoshi. He wants to be anonymous, why don't we leave it that way? This entire paradox about Satoshi's true identity is just reoccurring over and over again, only with different words and whatnot.  If we find Satoshi Nakamoto in the flesh, what's next? Worship him as a god or something?

Ok so don't participate in the witch hunt. That's valid. But if you are going to participate it's silly to keep debating exactly who Nick Szabo is and how old he is. That is known.

Conclusively prove who he is and how old he is then, and back up any claims with multiple sources of rock solid evidence. When I checked it out I found multiple contradictory pieces of information which cannot all be correct.

Really wish you guys would shut the fuck up about the 85 year old Nick Szabo, who is clearly a different person. 'Szabo' returns 12 million Google results. It's not an uncommon name.

The Nick Szabo in question is the one from the New York Times article, who is in his 50's. Enough is known about that Nick Szabo to know who we are talking about: Washington Computer Science undergrad, GWU Law Degree in 2006, has written extensively online for two decades etc.


What are the sources for Washington Computer Science undergrad, GWU Law Degree in 2006,. I always though his name was another pseudonym especially since you can't find much info about him online even with a name like that. 

So I assume that this Nick Szabo that is being linked to with Satoshi Nakamoto is in his 50s or 60s now.

Assuming that is him he looks late 40s early 50s to me.

So now that we know about Nick Szabo, what about Wei Dai? Has anyone seen a picture of him? Where does he work? Is he a different person than the usual suspects?

__________________________________________________________________________
Romana Machado - Geoff Dale - David Gordon - Nick Szabo - Russell Whitaker

We can't call ourselves Nexus-Lite any more. When Dave Gordon moves in,
we'll have tied the most populous nexus* of all recorded history. The
residents of Nexus-Lite (but getting heavier by the minute), an Extropian
intentional community, invite you to a Nexus Naming Potluck Party. Prizes
for the best name for our Nexus will be awarded.

We are also celebrating Housemistress Romana's appearance in WIRED and
bOING bOING, describing her excellent shareware program, Stego! Thanks for
your excellent articles, Sandy!

Dress for the future, bring a friend. Flip a coin; heads bring food, tails
bring drink.

When: Saturday, March 12, 1994, 7.p.m (after the Cypherpunks meeting, until
an indeterminate time on the following day)

Where: 21090 Grenola Drive, Cupertino CA
(See Obligatory Crude Ascii Map Attached Below)

Tel: (408) 253-1692

*nexus (neks-us) n. A place where extropians** live in comfort for mutual
profit, and work on extra credit assignments without fear of reprisal.

**extropian (eks-tro-pee-an) 1) n. A boundlessly optimistic futurist who
will live forever or die trying. 2) n. Exactly like a human, only much,
much better. 3) n. A champion in the war against entropy. 4) adj. Any way
cool thing an extropian would like.

nextropian (neks-tro-pee-an) 1) n. An extropian who lives in a nexus. 2)
Welcome to the Next Level.

DIRECTIONS:
Nexus-Lite is located at 21090 Grenola Drive in Cupertino.  Geoff Dale's
phone number (in case you get lost) is 408-253-1692.

From 280: Take the Saratoga/Sunnyvale (Or DeAnza Blvd, its all the same
thing) Exit (which is actually the 85 South detour).  Turn north on DeAnza
(aka Saratoga/Sunnyvale Road) at the exit (a left turn if you are coming
from San Francisco; right if you are coming from San Jose).  Turn left at
Homestead; go three blocks to N. Stelling, take left (at the McDonalds).
(Note: North Stelling is called Hollenbeck on the other side of Homestead.
Don't be fooled!)

From 101: Take 85 south and exit at Homestead; turn left onto Homestead.
Proceed several blocks (you will pass a high school); then turn right on N.
Stelling.

Once on N. Stelling:
Right at first light: Greenleaf
First left, Flora Vista
First Right on to Grenola Dr
21090 (mnemonic: anagram for Beverly Hills zip code) is a tannish house on
left with a high roof that slopes toward the street.
Park on the street -- in the direction of traffic, or you may get a $15
ticket. This has happened.

Who are their employers?

Nick Szabo the one born in 1930, graduate of UC Berkeley, resident of Silicon Valley (Cupertino), employed at Lockheed, Link-Singer, and KLA,
http://www.faireconomy.org/files/pdf/notalonereportfinal.pdf


That would make him 85 years old and still employed....
I doubt it. Most people retire in their early 60s.

Count Szabo is a man who never dies, and who knows everything.
