VIDEO ONLINE OF CLINT CURTIS TESTIMONY!

UPDATED TO INCLUDE FULL VIDEO TESTIMONY!

UPDATE 12/18/04: The full video of Clint Curtis' sworn testimony before the U.S. House Judiciary Members in Ohio is now available via streaming RealPlayer right here!

Previously, we only had links to a portion of his testimony, which did not include his naming of Rep. Tom Feeney (R-FL) as having asked him to write the "vote-rigging software prototype! This clip now includes all of Curtis' testimony!

FULL CLINT CURTIS TESTIMONY ON VIDEO:

The testimony was reported as "jaw-dropping" and "stunning" last week in this earlier BRAD BLOG exclusive!

The transcript of the earlier partial video, transcribed by the good "ignatz" from DKos is here. (Though you'll miss the audible gasps as heard on the video versions and the naming of Tom Feeney!) We're working on getting a transcript of the full testimony and will update here when we do!

Be the media.

Who videotaped this segment? Link is unclear.

Feeney is not audibly mentioned in the snip. Gasps and hisses are heard but seem to come more from the audience than panel.

Curtis' nervous jokes and giggles inappropriate.

Not the best snippet to convince mainline press, MO.

And I *am* a dumass leftie who called Arnie in California, prompted by a moveon.org mailing list email to oppose proposed voting machines.

In my district, for last 10+ years, have voted on punchcard. During last primary, voted on touch screen.

This 2004 election, for the first time in my voting career, however, I voted with paper ballot and a black felt tip pen.

In a predominantly Repub district.

Not worried about paper trail for my vote.

Very concerned about issues raised here.

Fight on,
R

I saw the Curtis testimony on the clip. I didn't hear any mention of Feeney. Can we get a clip that does?

Brad:

Why does you post still say that you "haven't had a chance to review" the video clip? It's a short clip and its been posted since last night.

Why doesn't Mr. Curtis mention Mr. Feeney in the video clip.

I called the Democratic Staff of the House Judiciary Committee. A staff member, who was not present at the "forum" yesterday in Columbus Ohio - it was not a committee meeting as only the Democrats were present - and she confirmed that Mr. Curtis did testify at the forum. She confirmed that video cameras had been present at the forum but said that the Democratic staff was not in possession of a videotape. She said that the transcript would eventually be available but perhaps not for a week.

When I began to ask about Mr. Curtis' allegations, she cut me off mid-sentence and said that she had told me all she knew.

I sent this email to a main steam type journalist:

<<
Mr. Olbermann,

Are you watching the hearings on the Ohio Vote? One person (Curtis sp?) is reported to have testified under oath in a Monday hearing in Ohio that a congressman approached him to inquire about writing some vote altering software prototype.

Others are saying there are no adequate public reviews available for the software used in electronic voting machines this election (no adequate paper backup trail for an accounting).

Yet others say the machines have been modified after the election in preparation for the recount.

Please be the mainstream news guy that takes a close look at this.

It (fair voting) is the foundation of the republic. I can not see how we can criticize the Ukranians about voting and not have close scrutiny of ourselves.

I watched the video twice, and Curtis seems a nice enough fellow. The key thing now is to get issues surrounding his credibility resolved. During his testimony, Curtis made a number of statements the authenticity of which can be checked out. In particular, near the end he named a specific person who had been convicted and ultimately fined $100. It would help solidify Curtis' credibility immensely if such facts could be independently and publicly verified. (If you have already done this somewhere, I apologize. First time here. I admit I haven't read all the prodigious work that is Brad's blog!)

Thank you for posting this video. I've been watching MSNBC and CNN all day knowing that until Olberman would I not hear anything. I watched the video twice before I could even write.

Maybe next month, when the Congressional Black Caucus tries to stop the Bush certification by Congress, and needs only one senator to back them, with this type of evidence, they may find their backer.

Senator Kerry's concession speach means nothing. This evidence calls all elections since at least 2000 in question. (Dashell, Dean, etc.)

What is happening with this? I don't understand how we can accept Bush as the president. In the U.S. Senate, the Republicans stopped the legislation that Boxer, Clinton, and I think one other Senator tried to bring forward that would have required a paper trail for all electronic voting machines. There is only one reason the Senate Republicans could have for wanting to disallow a paper trail and it isn't to save trees!

Computer News
In search of the best


Ask.com, Answers.com outperform more popular Web engines

Even as they become more savvy, the Internet's leading search engines still sometimes bog down in befuddlement when a specific kernel of knowledge is sought.

Hoping to fill the gap, Answers.com (from GuruNet Corp.) and Ask.com (from Ask Jeeves Inc.) have pledged to provide more adept responses to vexing but straightforward questions about history, science, geography, pop culture and sports.


Both search engines aim to provide a correct answer explicitly at the top of a search's first results page -- or with a highly placed link to a Web page that contains the information.

Their mission raises a question: Just how knowledgeable are these search engines?

To find out, I staged a very unscientific test consisting of questions culled from a recent edition of Trivial Pursuit.

My mock game pitted the avowed prowess of Answers.com and Ask.com against the Internet's most widely used search engines -- Google, Yahoo and Microsoft Corp.'s MSN.

The findings: Answers.com and Ask.com appear to be a small step ahead of Google and noticeably smarter than Yahoo and MSN when dealing with such esoteric questions as "What glass beads are created when a meteorite strikes the Earth's surface?"

Both Answers.com and Ask.com guided me to the correct answer (tektites) with the first link on the results page -- an aptitude that both sites displayed with 10 of the 20 questions posed in the theoretical game. When they didn't get the answer with the very first link in response to some questions, both search engines generally came through within the next two links.

Although they performed similarly in our game,-Answers.com and Ask.com rely on different formulas.

Answers.com relies on a combination of Google's search engine and human editors who have stoked its database with answers to frequently asked questions that they've obtained by poring through reference materials.

Ask.com, part of a Web family about to be acquired by e-commerce conglomerate InterActiveCorp for $2 billion, has devised a fully automated approach that fishes through the Internet's sea of information.

Although they are superior to the other search engines at this task, Answers.com and Ask.com rarely realized their ultimate goal -- making things as clear-cut as possible by summarizing the correct response at the very top of the results page so it wouldn't be necessary to click on a link and peruse another Web site.

Ask.com spit out a concise "Web answer" in just two of the 20 questions, while the only time that Answers.com delivered was when I sought the definition of "googol." (It's the number one followed by 100 zeros.)

Google, which drew its name from that mathematical term, fared reasonably well in the competition. The Internet's most popular search engine came up with the correct answer on the first link in eight of the 20 questions (including the one about tektites). That's something Yahoo did just five times and MSN only twice.

None of the sites was omniscient. Answers.com, Ask.com and Google each drew blanks on three questions (I considered it a miss if a link to the correct answer didn't appear within the first three pages of results). Yahoo and MSN each whiffed on six questions.

There was only one question that baffled all the search engines, "Who was the first Cuban defector to play in Major League Baseball?" Although they all contained references to him in their indexes, none of the search engines could figure out it was Rene Arocha, a pitcher who first signed with the St. Louis Cardinals in the early 1990s.


Though it lagged behind the other search engines in this competition, MSN looked brilliant on one question that stumped all the other search engines: What company was acquired in the biggest leveraged buy-out deal of all time? The first link on MSN's results page took me to a site that correctly listed RJR Nabisco.

The test also revealed the disadvantage of depending on search engines -- they sometimes point to sites with conflicting answers.

This occurred most frequently when I asked how many viewers watched the series finale of the TV show M*A*S*H. The search engines pointed to Web sites that variously listed the audience at anywhere from 105.9 million to nearly 125 million. Trivial Pursuit lists the answer as 121.6 million.

To paraphrase M*A*S*H's theme song, searching for online answers still isn't painless.

Last week I told you about Google Site Targeting -
putting your AdWords ads on specific websites
instead of targeting by keyword, and how this
slices the world in a completely different way.

Now you can pay to have your ad shown, rather
than paying per click, and you can more easily
advertise products that people wouldn't necessarily
think to search for.

Google started out selling this space for $2.00
per thousand impressions ("CPM"). Then they
dropped it to $1.00.

On Monday they just dropped it again, to 25 cents.

(Now we're talking!)

This now puts those clicks in the ~5 cent neighborhood,
and in some cases less. It's a fun thing to play with.
But before you do, though, make sure you:

-Set a low daily budget so you don't make a big mistake

-Track conversion rates (Very important! Without
sales conversion, nothing else matters.)

-Delete sites with horrible Click Thru Rates - Hey, if
you're not getting any clicks, you shouldn't be paying
them for the impressions.

Want to increase the clicks on your adsense ads? Of course you do. This means more money in your pocket.
For FREE Information. That will for sure make you more money by the end of the week.
