Yeah, there's a lot to know and it's growing exponentially. But we're talking about not knowing the basics, that are concepts applied across technologies. There's really no excuse for not knowing that after getting a degree, and I've seen it over and over even with interviewees with a degree and 10+ years of experience.
True. But the pie slice that represents the basics is so small compared to the rest of the pie. It isn't horribly expensive to teach the basics if it means getting what would be a great co-worker over the longer term.
No. Have a sense some string pullers jumped into the camp when Trump won the R nomination. That combined with having switched to the mind set of taking over an existing party after many failed years of 3rd party results and I'm not spending too much time on the offering this year for the libertarian party.
Interesting. Nigel Farage has been on my radar for at most 9 months. Before that I hadn't heard of him. (speaker warning: sound recording quality not very good at this venue)
Trump start lead up to introducing Nigel.
Actual Nigel part start.
what about something like how SSL works ?
the voter has or creates a private key that is used to sign the ballot
the elections system can use a public key to access the votes cast and a hash like a guid that is the public id of "who the voter is" to show that they are not voting more than one time, but the name of the person is not given.
results can be tabulated in real time.
the voter can verify the vote is registered by use of the private key to validate their vote.
any tampering for the vote alters the data such that the key is not able to read it.
I think that can be done and might help with a number of things that people have concern about.
we have a lot of public key tech out there right now and we know it's pretty good.
There needs to also be some sort of structure that prevents "shaving" (i.e. 1 vote = 1 whole vote). Almost something like the bit coin transaction history where all the historical entries can be evaluated and proven a whole 1 for each adds up to the reported total for each candidate.
I all in on that. This way more trusted observers (selected at more local level by the voters) are involved in the counting. This makes it harder to corrupt a single or limited point of control as well.
hmmmm. confidence in the voting process is becoming a problem.
