‘Shocking’ Leak Blows Up Mystery Of Bitcoin Creator Satoshi Nakamoto

quote [ Satoshi Nakamoto disappeared shortly after publishing bitcoin's white paper in 2008 and the name has since been linked to various coders, developers and so-called cyberpunks—with Australian computer scientist Craig Wright orchestrating an elaborate but unconvincing demonstration that he is Nakamoto in 2016.

Now, after Wright has spent years claiming to be Nakamoto and dragging naysayers through the courts, a leaked email has suggested one of his biggest backers has lost faith. ]

Finally! Sounds like Craig Wright is about to be on a track to lose his case and be declared a scammer

Rhapsodies in Blue: Anna Atkins’ Cyanotypes

quote [ In an era when the Enlightenment’s orderly vision of the natural world began to unravel, Anna Atkins produced the world’s first photography book: a collection of cyanotypes, created across a decade beginning in 1843, that captured algal forms in startling blue-and-white silhouettes. Paige Hirschey situates Atkins’ efforts among her naturalist peers, discovering a form of illustration that, rather than exhibit an artist’s mastery over nature, allowed specimens to “illustrate” themselves. ]

I could never sleep by your cyanotype pictures
