Probably Good News

I see over on the Salon wire that Diebold has dropped their threat of lawsuits against the people who publicised their source code and its weaknesses. I assume this is a good thing, but it seems extraneous to the heart of the matter, which is how we can trust unaudited election schemes. Until the central issue is addressed, presumably by legislation, this will remain a minor victory. As expected, Talkleft mentions this, and has a whole bunch more stuff archived about electroinic voting.
