    Thanks for the video! Glad I was able to see John’s talk, even though I hadn’t been able to make it in person.

    Two points that really caught my attention:
    – John mentions the many-to-one communications challenge (email overload) electeds face as one of the fundamental problems with internet-based governance.
    – Joly’s callout that campaign contributions could be made fraudulently.

    Oh and I noticed that the fullscreen mode is defaulting to a 4:3 aspect ratio. Looks a little funny that way.

    “Life is an arms race” – love it!

    “One of the things about being completely transparent and visible is that gradually you become at home with being yourself.” (paraphrasing a bit)

    I’m unable to recreate the 4:3 – tried it on a couple boxes, one with a 4:3 screen..
