Hacking Democracy

I hope a lot of you got to see the documentary Hacking Democracy on HBO the other night. The Hugh M. Hefner Foundation was one of the supporters, and it got a fair amount of very positive attention. I hope it will air again, so do set your TIVOs. But, rewarding though it is to support great documentary work, it's a little scary how relevant it's become and how quickly. I'm hearing about massive voter machine problems today, especially in Ohio, Tennessee and Indiana----where the polls are going to be kept open later to try to compensate. Given that there's a chance that today's turnout will be the highest in a midterm election since 1974, let's hope all the votes get counted....and counted right.
