    Polis for Prez 2016?

    Jared Polis is an amazingly smart, progressive, and fact-based person. If Congress were full of people like him, we’d be much better off. He’s the type of politician that is genuinely worthy of respect.

      You mean that exists for real? 

      Now, what about Unizilla?

      Just realize that Boulder County is an anomaly within Colorado. Nederland, CO is an anomaly within the known universe..

      We’re not like the rest of our state, that’s for sure. Denver is increasingly sophisticated & urban (and progressive), but outside of Denver & Boulder, Colorado’s as red as its neighbors.

      But we’ll keep JP in office. We like him.

    This is also the same person who posted on the League of Legends message boards to rally opposition to SOPA.

    I was at the hackerspace when he was there. Great surprise – both to see my congressmen in our space and to see him in a boingboing shirt! He was very friendly and chill. Some of our members who didn’t know who he was thought he was just another regular person.

    It’s incredibly cool to have a congressmen that I can respect politically, and also geek out with. Holy cow, why can’t the rest of the federal government be so awesome?

    OMG so excited to be on BoingBoing twice in one year! 
    John Maushammer is a way better photographer than me, too. And to think, he printed out the camera from scratch and made the memory card from leftover macaroni!

    • morcheeba says:

      Aw, thanks!  I didn’t really print out that camera from scratch, but I have reverse-engineered a series of “disposable” digital cameras to make them reusable. I bypassed the security mechanism that the company put in them (intended so that only they could retrieve your pictures, for a price of course!).  There’s a bunch of DMCA implications, so if you’re interested, I can give you an earful from a hacker perspective!

      You should write a how-to article for MAKE, Rep. Polis!
