Wiki to the rescue: A Collaborative Attempt to Protect the Vote

Comedian, activist, Obama supporter, and Jack & Jill Politics blogger Baratunde Thurston has launched The Voter Suppression Wiki. The freely-editable online hub aims to coordinate information and activism around any foul play and/or mess ups that might make election '08 less than on the level. Of note: Baratunde reports that the wiki is drawing on the lessons learned from the innovative Get FISA Right effort that we've often covered on techPres in the past. No matter where you stand on the subject of the wiki, you may well appreciate Get FISA's Jon Pincus's insightful analysis of how the rather vanilla technology can be used to rebalance the "information asymmetry" often at play in politics. #
