So Internet guru and, I believe, early investor in Cisco systems and Apple Robert “X” Cringely has finally copped on to the Diebold story. Maybe I am being harsh, but the Swarthmore story was originally posted on Slashdot back in October, and I’ve been following it intently since then.
He makes some rather obvious suggestions such as a paper trail, which California have decided to adopt, and I believe is either in trial, or being used in Australia. He seems to criticise the media for not picking up the story….weblogs have, and weblogs are media – at least in my own eyes.
It can be funny to watch a story like this develop and never actually read about in any major newspaper, getting the major coverage it deserves.
