Does anybody have a project in mind that could connect  
computing/developing projects, and political/public service.

Not something partisan, like just making a pro-candidate website, but  
something that affects civil involvement as a whole, such as a neat way  
to apply P2P and such to political outreach.

Any random BS thoughts are appreciated, even if you only want to talk  
them over with me alone.

take care,
