Like talking about out there.

The guy she’s looking for has complete mastery of the many stakeholders involved in making a cryptocurrency ecosystem function, but her target can barely manage to interact with her over email, much less in person. For me the most painful forced error on her part is how she completely fails to appreciate and make sense of the interaction that took place when she finally met her target. This is someone who likely dealt with a regular stream of non-disclosure agreements during the normal course of work who was just trying to explain why he can’t talk about his past work, yet she manages to find an admission in there that he was working on the exact thing she happened to be researching. Most of us that deal with journalists regularly enough know that this kinds of mistakes are typical early on when engaging with an unfamiliar story, but the depth of this reporters self-deception is impressive indeed.

Why do you want to know? if he is trying to remain undercover is because he does not want to be a target of prying eyes. Its his right as a human.

Double spacing after a period is a fairly common practice. Wikipedia has an article on “sentence spacing” that discusses it specifically. While it is not recommended today, it used to be very common in the typewriter days. Some editing software ignores it, while other software forces it.

At most, it suggests an older writer (I’d guess the habit is more common with people taught before the ’90s), but from what I can gather when I google it, that’s not at all certain. I absolutely don’t think it was worthy of note in the Newsweek article.

Incidentally, as you can probably tell, I still have the double spacing habit. I almost edited it out, in case somebody would start hunting after me just for that.

Maybe something like this:

“I’m not involved int that, can’t say anything about it. Other people are doing it, in charge of it, I have no connection with it.”

And the mind modifies that to what it wants to hear, unencumbered by voice recorders or stenography skills.

By the way, read the reporter’s blog for accounts of her U.K. visa troubles. She’s a little fast and loose with things and inclined towards expediency and conspiracy theories.

Just in case the whole origins-of-bitcoin thing hadn’t been a wonkish enough discussion before, now an 18th century mathematician has been brought into the mix.
