Not really software development. But one little snippet, Ed, that you
might put in the Wiki and/or in a slashdot submission is that OVC is
actively involved in IEEE P-1622 "Voting Systems Electronic Data
Interchange." Blah, blah, blah: Along with developing a reference Free
Software voting system, OVC is working with commercial vendors and the
IEEE to develop open public standards for the exchange of information
related to voters, voting, and ballots.

Specifically, I'm the "OVC representative" there. Arthur is also an
individual member. And Kurt Hyde has attended two working group
teleconferences (and will be eligible for membership as of the next
official meeting, according to the committee rules).

I'll write about this at:

It's a small thing. Joe Hall's work on voting machine databases is
probably more important. Or David Jefferson's significant role on the
California voting commission (what's the exact name?). But IEEE
standards might appeal to techies.

Yours, David...
