I greatly enjoyed the election-method-reform discussions that arose 
during my VoteFair ranking presentation, and afterward at the Lucky Lab. 
  Thanks for the fun!

If anyone here (even if you didn't attend my presentation) has any 
questions that arise after reading the documentation in the 
Voting::VoteFairRanking module, please ask.

As I tried to emphasize in my presentation, election-method reform is 
long overdue!

P.S. I don't know when I'll have time to create the movie that Eric told 
you about, but I hope to do so eventually.

P.P.S. For anyone who didn't attend, I suggest looking at the Dashrep 
language I created.  It powers lots of the VoteFair.org site and most of 
the NegotiationTool.com site.  The Dashrep engine is on the CPAN 
archives.  Overview, tutorial, interactive demo, etc. are at: Dashrep.org

P.P.P.S. Today I saw that the Occupy movement is trying to experiment 
with better voting methods, and they don't seem to have lots of contact 
with programmers, so that might be a symbiotically beneficial 
collaboration to explore.
