The mystery of who's behind deepens. On Wednesday evening, someone calling himself Andrew Seldon registered the URL "," listing an address in Portland, Oregon. Was this our famed anony-blogger (who appears to have rejoined the party, minus the exclamation points!!!!), laying the groundwork for a public unveiling? Or just some cyber-squatter, snatching up a suddenly-hot web address?

A little investigating only raised more questions. A public records search turned up no evidence of an Andrew Seldon in Oregon, and a operative who visited the address listed in the registry found no house or office, just "a tiny shotgun shack, no bigger than an outhouse, with no power line running to it" in a rural neighborhood of "rusting pickups, snarling dogs, moss-covered mailboxes, and ramshackle stables." Neighbors questioned said they had never heard of an Andrew Seldon.

Breaking News

Though an email address was also listed on the registry, a message sent to it produced no reponse, and by Thursday morning the name on the listing had been shortened to Andrew S.
