Are we exhibiting?

      Gov 2.0 Summit
      The Platform for Change
      Co-produced by O'Reilly Media and TechWeb
      September 9-10, 2009
      Washington, DC

If so, we can probably organize a FLOSS Manuals book sprint about the
OVC software and all of the issues at the conference. I helped write
their books on How to Bypass Internet Censorship, Firefox 3.0, and
Introduction to the Gnu/Linux Command Line. You supply the voting
experts and software people at the conference or online, and FM will
supply editors, a graphic artist, and a publishing specialist. We have
it down to three days from book outline to publication at our
print-on-demand site, lulu.com. Getting books on Amazon takes a little
longer.

Here are a few topics. This is not a suggested outline, but could be
the starting point for writing one.

Introduction
The Sorry State of US Voting
  A Brief History of Stolen Elections
  An Alternate History: No problems in FL;The Gore Administration
  HAVA
  EAC
  Voting Machine Manufacturers
  Failures to Prosecute
Requirements for Voting Systems
  Before the vote: Registration, Candidates, Measures
  Election Law and Custom
  Secret Ballot
  Fraud Prevention
  Security

  Software Testing
  Canvassing (Counting the Ballots)
  After the vote: Audits, legal challenges, correctives

An Action Plan
