Dear DU,

This video is not strictly relevant/appropo to anything..... but some of you may be interested to see me on the smallest screen. Its been 8 years now since the long since tombstoned Bev Harris and I broke the story about the hackability of Diebold voting machines right here on DU.

I talked in more detail about how we broke the story open in this video which was produced as part of a History of the New Zealand Internet project called DownToTheWire

Some of you here may recall:
The story:
nside A U.S. Election Vote Counting Program

The cache of source code (& the editorial)
Sludge Report #154 Bigger Than Watergate!
And here on DU... the activism that a bunch of us put together.
The Scoop/Diebold UBERPOST: Ratings and Rantings from the South Pacific

I see (thanks to BradBlog's stirling work - and that of countless activists across your great nation) that your elections are still hackable so everything changes but nothing changes I guess.

Scoop is still publishing US Election Integrity news when we receive it - and we will probably revive for your next presidential election along with another advertising camapaign to support the work of activists in the field.

So how are things around here anyway? It's been a while.
