The New Yorker Attempts to Identify Bitcoin Creator

The New Yorker has set out to uncover the identity of the creator of Bitcoin. I'm not really sure why they want to know so bad, does it make a difference who created it?

I then took one more opportunity to question him and to explain all the reasons that I suspected his involvement. Clear responded that his work for Allied Irish Banks was brief and "of no importance." He admitted that he was a good programmer, understood cryptography and appreciated the Bitcoin design. But, he said, economics had never been a particular interest of his. "I’m not Satoshi," Clear said. "But even if I was I wouldn’t tell you."
