Ignorance On Display

Time has an article, Can This Machine Be Trusted?, about the introduction of the new voting systems. Their subhead:

The U.S.’s new voting systems are only as good as the people who program and use them. Which is why next week could be interesting.

together with their final paragraph:

In a country of 300 million, it is far preferable for partisans, poll workers, defensive voting-machine manufacturers and voters to adjust to the new technologies, eliminate their weak spots and work to keep human errors to a minimum. In that way, voting by machine may someday be no more mysterious than making a visit to the ATM.

illustrate a basic problem with a lot of people who select equipment and those reporting on it.

You Weren’t Imagining It

Still having problems:

Sunday, October 29, 2006

There are problems with publishing to blogs. We are working on fixing this. Blogs on the beta are not affected.
Update 9:14 AM (PST): Publishing works now, expect some slowness though as we wrap up fixing this issue.

Note: I post about this because Blogger Status is on Blogger. If Blogger is having problems, you can’t see the status reports, which is why Google should move it to another system.
