  •  Open Source movement.. (none)

    Given the increasing debate about the existence of, and potential for, voting irregularities pertaining to electronic voting, why don't we start an open source movement on designing the electronic voting software and applications for the next elections. Why should be let companies like Diebolds of the world, with obvious and blatant conflict of interest, be the preferred providers of e-voting software and hardware, when a distributed and passionate community of technologists from both parties--republican and democrats--take on the challenge of writing the open source software for the next elections. After what can be more exiciting and fitting, than designing and deploying a system FOR THE PEOPLE, BY THE PEOPLE. I am sure it can be anchored under the auspices of a group like the Mozilla Foundation, or an entirely new entity. It is certainly a worthy cause.
