Digital Divide for August 13, 2010
If you use computers and internet, chances are you use open source software. Whether its word processing with OpenOffice, browsing the internet with Firefox, or serving up web pages with Apache, there's an open source solution for just about any problem. But can open source help us build a better voting system?
Dave DeAngelis speaks with Greg Miller of the Open Source Digital Voting Foundation about creating an open source, publicly owned, and trustworthy voting technology for any U.S. elections jurisdiction.
We'll also hear a recorded talk with Howard Rhinegold, Professor at Stanford and Berkeley, about how open source software encourages collaborative thinking and development.
