This is a long shot and I apologize in advance for any time wasted and for cross-posting to unrelated groups. Please: DO NOT reply to this email.

I have been working on a project that I believe will do a good job in raising awareness of alternative voting systems. Initially I want to contrast single-choice with approval and range but I'm interested in adding Condorcet also. I'm looking for people who would be willing to donate time.

I don't want to reveal the exact nature of the project just yet so I'll make only a few general comments. The goal is to expose large numbers of people to a spectrum of ideas that currently get very little to no press. This includes the various voting methods, some alternative economic perspectives and ideas such as permaculture. Adding your favorite idea into the mix is definitely an option. Note that exposure and education, not advocacy is the intent here.

This is a not-for-profit endeavor and the only reward would be in the success of the project and having your name on the credits.

Any combination of the following skills needed:

Scheme programming or a willingness to learn scheme
Postgresql, schema design.
Html Kickstarter/html5
Possibly IOS app writing (android already covered)
Maybe test writing?

If any of this piques your interest and you think you could afford to spend several hours a week for a few months working on this please contact me at address@hidden

Thanks for reading and I hope you'll forgive the off-topic cross-post.
90% of the nations wealth is held by 2% of the people. Bummer to be in the majority...
