Tony Porter: A call to men
Great talk. Unfortunately, so far from some realities, including the one I'm part of. Such a cultural shift doesn't come easy, nor fast. But we all have hope, right? :-)

David Bismark: E-voting without fraud
This might work in the USA, maybe. I don't know your culture enough to know if politicians buy votes over there. But it's definitely NOT a good idea for places where politicians buy votes, like Brazil. It would be great for a politician to go to the internet with a voters' receipt and check that he really voted on him, and then pay (or not) the voter. It would be a dream for them. Honestly, I wouldn't recommend such a system even in places where vote buying isn't commonplace, at the risk of giving birth to such a practice.
