Upcoming HBO documentary to feature Andy Stephenson
Is anyone going to watch "Hacking Democracy"? I am conflicted. On the one hand, I feel good about seeing Andy in the film; on the other hand, I feel sad knowing that many DUers who deserve credit for their activism will fail to be given any credit. Also, I am apprehensive about any revisionism which I know will color my perception of the documentary. If it is simply the hagiography of Bev I will be disgusted. What do some of the rest of you think?

Here's the email I got from Andy's partner Ted aka Termite:

Hi Everyone, Looks like Andy has hit the "Big Time!" Andy was in a 30 minute documentary released in 2004 titled "Votergate." But now in time for the elections the film makers (Russ & Rob) have used additional footage to make an updated full length documentary feature titled "Hacking Democracy" and dedicated the film to Andy. It will be released on HBO this coming Thursday, Nov. 2nd. Additional showing will air. Hope you all get a chance to see it! Russ tells me there is footage of Andy in it I haven't seen. I'm on pins and needles!
