Ed Felten, Princeton Professor of Computer Science and Public Affairs, also known for Felton v. RIAA and Freedom-To-Tinker, spoke with Scott Simon on NPR about an voter verifiable paper trail for electronic voting systems today.
A lot is happening right now with respect to e-voting with recent and upcoming elections, particularly with recent problems in Maryland. Check out the recording. He also spoke on “Science Friday” on voting technology yesterday.
Aside: I just found out that Ed Felten and Barbara Simons both been invited to testify at a Congressional hearing on voting technology Thursday at 10am (in room 1310 LHOB if you are in DC) and will be webcast. See also: USACM weblog.
