Geeks Speak: The Presidential Geek-o-Meter
My suggestion is to create a simple page with âoeGeek Metersâ that measure the tech/cyber/inventive/ etc. abilities, proclaimations, ideas, from the two camps. We need to include the geeks who are high in the campaign, who have geek successes, good/bad/ugly.
Essentially, a series of measurements (of course subjective, but I have an idea on that) based upon things like:
- Years (or days) using email
- User skills
- Geek-Speak test
- Can spell critical infrastructure and Linux in one breath
- Tech future ideas/programs: REAL alternative energy not just drill deeper. :-)) Space Program. Back to fundamental research.
I think it would be comparatively easy in a forum to come up with, say 100 geek criteria. We use board members (smart people like Slashdot people, for a vetting, weighting, tech journalists (who will help with major press).
Then we create at the same time a (say (0-5) criteria measurement.
We ask the campaigns to answer the questions. We have a voting system for the on-line folks, and then we have a dashboard with all of the collected data.
We can add/subtract/ etc. additional topics along the way.
At the bottom of the charts, take a total 100% weighting factor, and each candidate will get âoeGeek Vote Confidenceâ based upon the criteria the geek community itself decides.
This is essentially a cooperative (hobby) web site, guerilla marketing, that is unique and allows true geek representation in the forum and space they/we all understand.
this can also bring up serious political issues:
- Believe the military should cyber-defend the U.S. private sector?
- The private sector should defend itself.
- Cyber-vigilantism should be allowed/denied
- Make spammers pay with the death penalty (just kidding, but you get the point.
- Intellectual property protection ideas/beliefs
- Surveillance/cyber etc. rights, and beliefs
THIS COULD BE FRICKING AWESOME if anyone wanted to get behind it with some time. I can make myself available for certain aspects of this. visit my web sites: www.winnschwartau.com, www.thesecurityawarenesscompany.com, www.trustedlearning.com
See if this particular piece of Jello sticks. :-))))
