I've been following this pretty closely today and it honestly seems to be fairly convincing to me that he is.
The problem here is false positives. If you slowly go through all the Satoshi Nakamoto's in the entire world, what is the probability that you _won't_ find one who fits the profile of a secretive computer geek? Chances are that that is basically what we are seeing here.
The list of circumstantial evidence is fairly convincing, but it must be weighted against the odds of _not_ finding such a person. If you look for a person with the name "David O'Neill" who could fit Bitcoin Satoshi's profile, odds are you will also find such a man, with just such a set of circumstantial evidence.
On top of all that, there are details of the story which, bluntly, make it seem fabricated. The line about the cop who knew about "the guy who invented bitcoin" reads conspiculously like either an embellishment or an outright fabrication
"What?" The police officer balks. "This is the guy who created Bitcoin? It looks like he's living a pretty humble life."
I don't think the story has much credibility. Then again, I have a pretty low opinion of journalists anyway.
*Stands up* I'm Satoshi!!
