- Satoshi: Why Newsweek isn’t convincing | Felix Salmon - Felix Salmon has consistently written perhaps the best pieces on this ongoing saga. One point of mutual incomprehension between the "journos" and the "geeks" he misses/ignores though goes beyond the reasons he gives relating to the accuracy and credibility of the story. That point is that the journos can't comprehend that you wouldn't name someone notable like this if you discovered his identity and this fills a lot of people with real anger.

- Newsweek EIC tells Pando “We’ve hired security to protect our reporter.” Social media head: “We won!” | PandoDaily - "Impoco is surrounded by exactly the mix of San Francisco Glassholes and New York media types that you’d expect to find at a venue called the “Samsung Blogger Lounge.” The former contingent is here for the free bar, and most seem oblivious to the fuss surrounding Newsweek’s alleged outing of Bitcoin’s creator. But at least some of the reporters in attendance, ourselves included, are here to soak up the schadenfreude."

- The Satoshi Paradox | Felix Salmon - "I believe that Goodman believes that Dorian is Satoshi. I believe that Jim Impoco, my ex-boss, who’s now the editor of Newsweek, also believes that Dorian is Satoshi. But belief is not enough. Dan Rather believed that the Killian documents were genuine; Hugh Trevor-Roper believed that the Hitler diaries were genuine; Lara Logan believed that Dylan Davies was telling the truth about Benghazi. Big scoops are dangerous things."

- Newsweek outs Bitcoin founder — and his children, his wives, his employers… — Bob Sullivan - "Bitcoin, or whatever follows Bitcoin, has the potential to cause a revolution. It’s a real threat to central banking systems. It’s quite possibly a real boon to consumers, particularly those who want to move their money around the world without paying hefty fees for nothing. And of course, it’s a gift to criminals. Understanding Bitcoin’s origins and the founder’s philosophy is clearly of massive public interest. It’s worth violating his privacy. To a point."
- Adrian Cockcroft's Blog: Speeding Up Innovation - Cloud Expo Europe and QCon London 2014 - "Technologies and practices that have been developed in the leading web scale companies are finding their way into cloud based services that address the broadening of demand for these technologies, while packaging them to make them easier to implement. In addition, the pace of product development has greatly increased, and the ability to get faster feedback from customers and act on it conveys a significant competitive advantage."
