In case you don't know me. I was the co-founder of the Ron Paul Revolution March in 2008 and I ran RonPaulRadio from 2007 to 2010. I would love any input from the brilliant DP community on my latest project.

This would be a GREAT project. And we have the right partners.

This would need to be done using an open, shared data stream of some kind. Maybe taking from the peer-to-peer synchronization of the bitcoin ledger. We can do it!

Who's going to check that

Who's going to check that every single machine has the correct code?

I code. It's my job. I could write a project and make it very simple, efficient, stable and cheap. In fact I'm sure you could do the code math for it. It wouldn't be much code either.

yay for hacking

Bitcoins was a hack, no?

Code For America: Not my cup of tea...

If you look into their site, you can see that their goal is to serve existing governments. While I think what they are doing is great, we have a different approach. Our goals are more in line with truth activism and the NAP.
