*** jelkner has joined #NovaWebDev14:50
jelknerOh good, mr_german, replaceafill, glad to see you here!14:50
jelknerNext Tuesday is a big day for us.14:51
*** zOnny has joined #NovaWebDev14:51
jelknerWe have to hope Elizabeth wins!14:51
jelknerJust an FYI, btw, I've asked z0nny to help me with my blog14:51
jelknerI want to use:
jelknerand with the help of mjsir911, z0nny is going to learn to style this.14:53
jelknerreplaceafill, i want to move off of proprietary software, and i need to start blogging again for my Summer internship14:54
jelkneri *love* sphinx14:54
jelknerso ablog looked like a no brainer for me14:54
replaceafillback from lunch15:28
replaceafilljelkner crossing fingers for next Tuesday then15:28
jelknerbtw, replaceafill, i'll really need to talk to you about helios15:29
jelknerthere was a loooong thread on the PSF mailing list (which threatened to bust into flame, but managed to stay mostly civil)15:30
jelkneri need to understand the technical issues discussed (which i don't)15:30
*** zOnny has joined #NovaWebDev15:30
jelknersince if we want to support helios, we will need to understand well15:31
replaceafilljelkner, sure15:31
replaceafillany specifics?15:32
replaceafilli mean, specific issues15:32
jelkneri'll have to forward the messages to you15:32
jelknerbut the basic idea is that you want an election to be:15:32
jelkner1. verifiable (by the voters)15:32
jelkner2. anonymous15:32
jelknerso that the sys admin (or dba) can not determine who voted for what15:33
replaceafillthat's Massimo's email, correct?15:34
jelknermassimo claims his system did that (i'll need to learn more about crypography to understand how this all works)15:34
jelknerhe is on the mailing list.15:34
jelknerit was an entire thread15:34
jelknera lot of people posted15:34
replaceafillis it a shared concern?15:34
jelkneri think so15:34
jelknersome people were saying we don't have to care since we trust the people involved15:35
jelknerbut someone else understood the potential use of this software in other contexts, even more serious ones15:35
jelknerand made the claim that we need to get this right15:35
replaceafillit's a valid concern if we plan to provide services on this15:36
replaceafillis the helios developer in that conversation?15:36
jelkneri don't know15:41
jelkner - but Massimo filed this15:44
replaceafilli just subscribed to it15:46
jelknerThen you'll be able to see the archive.15:46
jelknerThe comment I liked best (which was not a majority opinion, since PSFers tend to be technologists, not social activists) is one by Justin Myles Holmes:15:48
jelkner"If we, as people discussing the nexus of science and civic participation, even on such a small scale as our board of directors, can lead by example in this regard, I think that it shows great civic virtue to do so."15:48
jelknerI chimed in, "Here, here"15:49
replaceafillwe're even a smaller scale :D15:49
jelknerbut the discussion then ended by folks saying this was the wrong forum for it, and that they were getting tired of all the emails.15:49
jelknerI was eating it up, so i was a bit disappointed by that :-(15:50
replaceafillthat's usual in the PSF mailing list afaik15:50
jelknerAnyway, i need to head to airport now on my way to Chicago.15:50
jelknerPeople's Summit here I come!15:50
