The Rise and Fall of Bitcoin

http://j.mp/shEiRG  (Wired)

   "In November 1, 2008, a man named Satoshi Nakamoto posted a research
    paper to an obscure cryptography listserv describing his design for a
    new digital currency that he called bitcoin. None of the list's
    veterans had heard of him, and what little information could be
    gleaned was murky and contradictory. In an online profile, he said he
    lived in Japan. His email address was from a free German service.
    Google searches for his name turned up no relevant information; it was
    clearly a pseudonym."
