    The Interstate Voter Registration Crosscheck Program identifies possible duplicate voters by looking at registrations by people with the same name and birthdate; a joint study by researchers at Harvard, Yale, and Microsoft found that 99% of the people it identifies as duplicate voters are not duplicate voters -- that is, it has a 99% false positive rate. States that use Crosscheck have historically interposed some kind of due process: if the system accused you of being a duplicate voter, you'd get a chance to rebut its accusation.

Today, it lost that contract after the governor of Puerto Rico demanded that it be canceled.

  6. Long, funny list of the many flaws in Blade Runner 2049Read the original story w/Photo

    Oct 30, 2017 | Boing Boing

    I enjoyed Blade Runner 2049, though I would have enjoyed it more if it was at least an hour shorter; Jamie Zawinski did not enjoy it for many inarguable reasons, ranging from plot holes to visual laziness to all the scenes and scenarios lifted from better movies and made worse . Hey, remember that scene where Jared Leto decants a full grown and terrified woman from a ZiplocA bag, while making some speech about how his "angels" need to be able to breed and reproduce sexually in order to fill the universe? So this naked sticky woman falls out of the bag and he somehow immediately knows that she is infertile Right so he lets her be born, wake up, and then he straight-up murders her.
