Teacamp

I went along to Teacamp today, a loose gathering of interested/ing folk who work with the UK government and online technologies (and a barcamp spin-off). I spoke to a very well-informed chap from Tyne & Wear who talked at length about the workings and machinations of The Digital Challenge & Inclusion Network, which was a bit of an eye-opener into the amount of politicking involved in the process.

I also spoke to Glynn from the Open Rights Group (the UK version of the Electronic Frontier Foundation) about the shortcomings and pitfalls of electronic voting. I didn’t realise there were so many. Apparently the London mayoral elections used electronic vote counting, and there was an alarming lack of transparency and checks in the system — see the Open Rights Group web site for more information.

Thanks to Jeremy for the introduction ;)
