and in trying to use the internet for clues
they looked at one suspect’s blog
and how he blogged like 3-4 times a week right until bitcoin got released
then his production went down to a trickle: 9-10 posts a year.
but heres the thing about blogging: it’s not easy.
and people quit all the time for lots of reasons
maybe he got a girlfriend
maybe he found a different hobby.
maybe he left when his audience shifted to facebook
maybe he was giving away too many clues as to what his real life was
or maybe he just ran out of ideas.
i remember in college, when robyn bell, my professor who pulled me out of letters and science
she said you need to go to the college of creative studies
i said ok but i have a question for you
i was 22.
i asked, since you teach at this college of creativity
can you tell me if creativity dries up?
she said no
i said then why do bands only have one or two good records?
you should think about actual artists like painters
painters can paint well until the day they die
i said ok but what about rockers?
she said bob dylan has never made a bad record
and i said i cant wait to learn more.
to me whoever invented bitcoin was creative
and probably kept blogging
but not in the place these detectives were lookin
