Unpossible!

From Dorian Satoshi Nakamoto, Newsweek's candidate for the inventor of Bitcoin:
Part of the story pointed to the fact that Nakamoto of Temple City had programming skills. In the statement, Nakamoto says: 
"My background is in engineering. I also have the ability to program. My most recent job was as an electrical engineer troubleshooting air traffic control equipment for the FAA. I have no knowledge of nor have I ever worked on cryptography, peer to peer systems, or alternative currencies." 
The Newsweek story also notes what appears to be a strange gap in his resume over the last decade, the time during which the bitcoin code was written and released. Nakamoto explains: 
"I have not been able to find steady work as an engineer or programmer for ten years. I have worked as a laborer, polltaker, and substitute teacher. I discontinued my internet service in 2013 due to severe financial distress. I am trying to recover from prostate surgery in October 2012 and a stroke I suffered in October of 2013. My prospects for gainful employment has been harmed because of Newsweek's article."
That's completely unpossible -- everyone knows that there is a major STEM shortage and there aren't enough programmers!

  1. Maybe he was good at his work, just not "good enough"....at least not much better than the cheap immigrant labor he may have been competing with.

    1. Isn't he an immigrant? Perhaps he couldn't compete with himself?

    2. Chad,

      In California there are a lot of Japanese Americans that have been here for 4 or 5 generations. Base on his name and his brother's name, I can confidently concluded that Dorian is a native born American of Japanese heritage.

      The ignorant you had shown in your comment is a huge issue in the Asian American community, where a person with foreign name is automatically assumed to be foreigner. I don't want to get into the whole Oppression Olympic Marathon with you.

      You really need to be more sensitive about what you are saying in public. You sounds very crass in your "humor". I'm not saying you are a bad person, we as human being all makes mistake.

      The whole "Us vs Them" mentality needs to die while The Man is exploiting all of us.
