Has anyone done an analysis of the early coins mined by Satoshi and Hal Finney? Have those coins been moved/spent/transacted?

I wonder whether Satoshi has been cashing in on his collection or does he just let it sit there?

The earlist blocks have not been spent (except for block 9). You can be alerted by email when new transactions occur here http://bitcoinwhoswho.com/address/12cbQLTFMXRnSzktFkuoG3eHoMeFtpTu3S/


You can watch the movement of coins on blockexplorers. Usually beside an output there is a spent/unspent designation.
If you look at block #10 for example
you see that the output (addr: 15yN7NPEpu82sHhB6TzCW5z5aXoamiKeGy) remains unspent.
You can look through other blocks in the same manner.
