Diebold [Sep. 22nd, 2004|10:57 am]

All this Diebold crap depresses me so much.

Why don't the People In Charge understand that an open, peer-reviewed, understood voting system is the only safe bet? Even if Diebold isn't intentionally evil (a big if), they're definitely not smart. Do you want a corporation rushing out shoddy voting software to make a buck, or would you rather a group of smart people made it for free, motivated only by making the best system that's fair and tamper-proof?

The People in general don't much know or care ("but it's DIGITAL!"), which is a depression I've long since come to accept, but I'd expect better of our government.

Good reading: http://www.blackboxvoting.com/ (which would be better with RSS)

Now, I'm not saying Diebold's solution is good, or stable, or right. I'm saying that in the eyes of the government, it's all the same.

I'll try not to tie in the conspiracy theory involving the CEO's ties with the Republican Party.

But, it is what it is.
