Hacking butterflies
Tuesday, November 07, 2006

Voting machines should be tamper proof, however, software voting machines will always have the same vulnerabilities any other software system has: it is unlikely that either of them will ever be 100% secure and tamper proof. If it has 0s and 1s, some clever block will find a way to modify it.

The HBO documentary, Hacking Democracy, is just bad news for everyone involved, specially Diebold, Inc., the makers of the actual voting machine. (Lets see how its stock is doing.)

Of course, the company would like the program to not air on cable TV. But does it really make a difference when it is already available online? If you have not seen it, you can watch the whole thing online at google video.

By the way, the word hacking sounds cool, and when it is used in documentaries is it even better. "The revolution will be hacked."
