Talk About Yer Security Vulnerabilities
Bruce O'Dell is a friend of mine from back in my Digital Agility days. He's been very invovled in USCountVotes, so he sent me this link. If you follow it, you can find details of the vulnerabilities of the Diebold optical scan equipment increasingly used to count votes here in the US. Regardless of whether or not you think vote tampering has taken place, it certainly seems to me that election machinery ought to be a bit more tamperproof than your briefcase lock...paper trail anyone? After all, ATMs have them - it's not like the technology is way out there or anything.
