Newsweek just outed the Bitcoin creator - a man who absolutely does not want any attention: http://goo.gl/09ftty

It's the most sensationalist, speculative and irresponsible article I've ever seen in Newsweek, essentially giving away Satoshi Nakamoto's full identity, license plates and home address.

Even if he isn't the real inventor, Leah McGrath Goodman has probably ruined the rest of Nakamoto's life, or maybe even killed him. Because now every criminal in the world knows who to kidnap and torture if they seek to aquire $400 million in Bitcoin.

I Like Giving have a beautiful 4 minute film about Evelyn, aged 97: http://goo.gl/tv4Tu4

She wants to help her neighbour Joyce get groceries every week, and in order to do that she needs to get her driver's license back, that was taken from her because of her age.

"I don't have money to give, but I can give myself and my time. I'm on the earth. If I can contribute, I should. Shouldn't we all?"

"Success is not a destination: It is a journey. The happiest people I know are those who are busy working toward specific objectives. The most bored and miserable people I know are those who are drifting along with no worthwhile objectives in mind."
- Zig Ziglar (speaker and author, 1926-2012)

Bad and good news via Maryam Namazie:

The bad news is that in Gaza the Islamic political party Hamas has banned women from taking part in an annual marathon. This is of course pure religious misogyny.

The good news is that the UN Relief and Works Agency for Palestinian Refugees has then cancelled the whole marathon, in solidarity of the women: http://goo.gl/fcQVw

As Maryam says: "If women and girls can’t participate, then the show must not go on."

Check out this very interesting TED talk called "The Quest to Understand Consciousness" by neuroscientist António Damásio. In 18 minutes he explains how the brain creates our sense of self - very educational and insightful: http://goo.gl/D9NYA

One night in Bangkok makes a hard man humble. And a WEEK...

(...makes men drink and tumble and mumble. And occasionally rumble!)

Norway's wealth fund boasted a return of 76.3 billion euros in 2009, and the total value of the fund now in 2010 is now 328.6 billion euros. Things are never perfect, but every man and woman in Norway MUST now realize how lucky they are that Norway has this financial security, compared to SO many poor nations in the world.

"We can approach everyone from a wish to share what we can give, rather than get what they have. We can feel complete non-neediness in all relations and not be dependent on anyone."
