Jameson Quinn has been participating in the Hugo voting reform thread at Making Light and is now seeking $1,400 in donations to a GoFundMe campaign in order to attend the Worldcon business meeting and support a proposed voting system.
I’ve been deeply involved with election theory for over a decade; and currently, I’m on the board of Electology.org (the Center for Election Science) and studying a doctorate in statistics at Harvard in order to further this interest. So when I heard about the problems with the current Hugo nominations, I had just the resources to help. On the guest posts by Bruce Schneier on the Making Light blog, I helped design and simulate a proportional voting system especially for the Hugo process’s needs, and now I’d like to go to Sasquan so that I can help explain it in the business meeting.
Quinn has raised $760 of his $1,400 goal at this writing.
