As you write “Towards the end of Goodman’s investigation, when she was preparing to try to meet with Dorian Nakamoto in person, Goodman told Impoco that if it didn’t turn out to be Dorian, then “we’ve got nobody”. That’s what Impoco was most likely talking about, when he talked about eliminating people. Goodman — and Impoco, more recently — was just saying that this was her last open thread, and that if Dorian didn’t pan out as the guy, then they didn’t have a story” So they have to make it Dorian Nakamoto.

very fair piece, felix. and I think your editing advice was spot on. this should not have been a ‘we found the creator of bitcoin’ story (because it really wasn’t). it should have been a ‘our search for the creator of bitcoin’ and leave the rest of us to decide if goodman got her man.

fwiw, I don’t think she did. I think she spent two months down the rabbit hole and came up with the wrong rabbit.

and if I hear one more statement about ‘forensic journalism’ I’m gonna puke. it’s just journalism, darlin’. call it investigative if you want. but ‘forensic’ gives it a sheen of scientific objectivity and omnipotence that I doubt it truly has.

I’m willing to be convinced otherwise if goodman/newsweek are willing to share all their research. I don’t see any reason why they shouldn’t, unless she’s planning a book about it.

cheers

(apologies if this appears twice, it’s hard to tell if the first one took.)

Although I still confess that, in amongst all the learned discussion of Kahneman’s cognitive psychology and forensic analysis and the like, if the question is “Is this guy Satoshi Nakamoto?” then at least some evidential weight should be placed on the fact “Yes he is”.

The discussion is obviously about whether a guy called Satoshi Nakamoto is the guy called Satoshi Nakamoto. I recall a junior high school lesson in definite versus indefinite articles….

Right now there are so many ad hominem attacks on both sides that its difficult to find objective evidence one way or the other. I’m sure that Goodman did have access to information that may be tough for others to get access to (“confidential sources”). For example, even the Social Security index that she referred to… I don’t think an ordinary person can get access to that. I’ve often wondered about who originally registered the domain bitcoin.org. I also wonder how satoshi has been able to cover his tracks for so long. Yes, I know I could go to my local library and register and email account and I would not be able to be tracked down, and there are proxy servers out there that would aid in keeping my identity and location unknown, but over the course of a decade it just takes one slip before someone can track you down. Are there some good resources out there that discuss how Satoshi was able to stay anonymous for so long?
