boston-area voting talk

If any of my boston-area readers are interested in really secure electronic voting, my friend Ben Adida, whose recent PhD thesis was on cryptographic voting, is giving an ‘intro to cryptographic voting’ talk tomorrow at Hahvahd. Free lunch even, apparently, though if it is like most Harvard lunches you’ll want to get there a bit early :) More details on Ben’s blog here. I haven’t heard Ben speak publicly on crypto-voting, but I have on other topics, and it has always been stimulating and educational, so I recommend it strongly if you’re interested in the topic.
