Submission + - New Jersey e-vote experiment after Sandy declared a disaster

TMB writes: Al Jazeera reports on a Rutgers study about e-voting in New Jersey after Superstorm Sandy, and it is damning. It concludes that the middle of a natural disaster is the last time to try switching to a new voting method, especially one rife with such problems as e-voting. The table of contents includes such section headings as "Internet voting is not safe, should not be made legal, and should never be incorporated into emergency measures".

Submission + - Freelance programming websites 1

TMB writes: I am gainfully employed in a non-programming job, but am interested in doing some freelance programming on the side. I've come across several websites for hooking up freelance programmers with employers who have specific problems (elance, guru, rentacoder,...) but I would like to know people's experiences with them. Have you done freelance programming through one of these (or others)? What's been your experience?
