  • On Friday, Feb. 18, Max Hailperin (MCS) participated in an interview on KFAI radio regarding proposed changes to Minnesota election law. (His interest in this topic stems from the ambitious computer system that a pending bill calls for, a topic that the interview actually only touched on a bit, mostly toward the end of the conversation.)  The archived audio is at http://www.kfai.org/node/34150 and the segment Hailperin is in starts at about the 29:54 point and runs for just under 15 minutes.
