We have a first draft
I'm pleased to say that I'm coming to the end of the first draft of Bitcoin - the Future of Money? I'm hoping to be done by the end of the week.
It's about 25% longer than I was planning, but my mission to identify Satoshi Nakamoto was all-consuming. (No clues as to what I've discovered, I'm afraid).
Three or four people are now going to read it and come back with comments. These include somebody who will never understand Bitcoin (my dad), a coder who understands it better than I ever will and a rather-too-honest friend with a low boredom threshold, who will unsympthetically highlight all points at which his threshold is reached.
This process will take a few weeks, but, as a keen re-writer, I know the book will be much better for it. Then we'll lay the thing out and check the final proofs before going to print.
We're slowly getting there.
All the best,
