I just thought it would be interesting for new bitcoiners to learn that the premise of the Lighting Network (updatable, multi-directional payment channels) was originally designed by Satoshi as a smart contract using nLockTime.

Lightning is more secure than what Satoshi described here, but it relies on some of the very same concepts.

So those who preach Satoshi's Vision® should realize that Lightning was part of his plan from the beginning.
