I took a look (for the first time) at the online demo that Laird
mentioned on /.. It looks GREAT! This is so wonderful for getting out
the message of what our system is about--especially the explanations of
the barcode, the PDF ballot, and the vocalization online
(unfortunately, when I try to play either the WAV or MP3, I get a
"broken quicktime" icon--but that's probably just my own browser
configuration, I'll try elsewhere).

However, this reminded me to look at the printed ballot again. I think
I noticed the following before, but figured it was a transitional
thing. Anyway: the flag in the background is very dark, and blocks out
some of the header information (and even makes it difficult to read the
top couple votes). I know we're getting very close, but can we
possibly make the flag a lighter screen before the demo--I think that
would make a big difference in impression (i.e. maybe 30% screen). I
suppose it's probably a matter of tweaking the postscript template.
