Yesterday, I wrote an article about how doxing differs from reporting, and about Newsweek's article alleging that it had found the elusive creator of Bitcoin, Satoshi Nakamoto. In the post I said that whether Leah McGrath Goodman's Newsweek story constituted doxing rested entirely on whether she had found the right man or not. She has claimed in multiple interviews that she is confident she has. The internet, however, apparently furious at what it considers a violation of the putative Bitcoin creator's privacy, has chosen to give Newsweek a taste of its own medicine by doxing Goodman and two others.
