Mozilla, Hubble, E-Voting

Looks like Mozilla Build 12 is finally available on the ftp servers (hasn’t been publicly acknowledged on the main page yet). I’ve heard good things, but I doubt it’s to the point where I can put away my current browsers. I can always hope though.

The repairs on the Hubble telescope begin tonight. Hopefully the procedure will go a lot more smoothly than the mission’s launch schedule did.

Looks like the Arizona Democratic Primary is going to be testing the Internet waters in March when it pioneers online voting. I think this is an important step in the right direction, as long as electronic voting is made secure with strong encryption. Whether that is true of the system they’ll be using remains to be seen.
