No Coincidences

"I'm not against machines, as are some people who feel that the computer is leading us back into the jungle...I'm against machines only when the convenience they afford to some people is regarded as more important than the inconvenience they cause to all."

- E.B. White, 1967

Generally speaking, I avoid discussing politics 'round these parts. Who wants to read that shit?

But take ten minutes to watch this video, in which Princeton computer scientists demonstrate how easy it is to hack Diebold's voting machines.

Then take a few more minutes to read Robert Kennedy Jr's Rolling Stone article about Diebold's electoral shenanigans. His description of the events surrounding the 2002 election in Georgia seems to be exactly what the Princeton video describes.

This concerns me.
