After Newsweek 'Outs' Purported Bitcoin Founder, Questions ...

Bitcoin - The Currency of the Internet

A community dedicated to Bitcoin, the currency of the Internet. Bitcoin is a distributed, worldwide, decentralized digital money. Bitcoins are issued and managed without any central authority whatsoever: there is no government, company, or bank in charge of Bitcoin. You might be interested in Bitcoin if you like cryptography, distributed peer-to-peer systems, or economics. A large percentage of Bitcoin enthusiasts are libertarians, though people of all political philosophies are welcome.

Why I'm skeptical of Newsweek's Bitcoin story

A synopsis of events compiled from the story:
  1. Reporter finds the record for a Satoshi Nakamoto in a database containing registration cards of naturalized U.S. citizens.
  2. Reporter discovers the man has since changed his name to "Dorian Prentice Satoshi Nakamoto" and signs his name "Dorian S. Nakamoto".
  3. Reporter finds this 64-year old man living in Southern California.
  4. Reporter discovers that Dorian works on model trains as a hobby.
  5. Reporter contacts company through which Dorian buys trains, asking for Dorian's email address.
  6. Company sends reporter Dorian's email address.
  7. Reporter strikes up an email conversation with Dorian about trains. Reporter asks about Dorian's professional background, but only gets evasive answers.
  8. Dorian asks about reporter's background.
  9. Reporter says she will tell him about her background by phone.
  10. Dorian doesn't answer phone when reporter calls him, and does not return subsequent calls.
  11. Two weeks later, reporter appears at the door of Dorian's home.
  12. Dorian opens the door a crack, then shuts it. He then calls the police.
  13. Two police officers arrive.
  14. A meeting takes place in Dorian's driveway between the reporter, Dorian, and the two police officers.
  15. Reporter explains she wants to ask Dorian some questions about Bitcoin. One officer acknowledges knowing about both Bitcoin and Satoshi Nakamoto.
  16. Dorian says he's "no longer involved in that", adding "It's been turned over to other people. They are in charge of it now. I no longer have any connection."
  17. Dorian refuses to answer further questions.
  18. The police break up the meeting.
The story's background information suggests Dorian Nakamoto might have had the means and motive to create Bitcoin, but there's nothing directly pointing to him as the creator of Bitcoin. There's no electronic trail leading to him. There's no hard evidence that this man even knows what Bitcoin is.
Dorian's statements in his driveway could be interpreted in a number of different ways given the sequence of events and statements by relatives.
I'm not convinced.

What's the difference between the Newsweek Bitcoin story and the Grantland Dr. V story?

In terms of journalistic ethics.
Obviously the Dr. V backlash came later and the turn in terms of the ethical conceit followed it.
In this case the backlash has been instant, but it "seems" that the journalistic community has supported the newsweek writer and it will be interesting tos ee where it goes. But I thought I'd ask about it here, see if anyone ahd thoughts.
