Douglas A. Kellner, Commissioner, New York City Board of Elections
- Plenary 12: Electronic Voting: The Great Paper Trail Debate

Doug Kellner has served as one of the ten commissioners of the New York City Board of Elections since 1993. He is the Democratic commissioner from Manhattan.

In his regular job, Commissioner Kellner is a partner in the law firm of Kellner Chehebar & Deveney. He specializes in the area of real estate litigation and represents a large number of tenants groups, cooperatives, and some non-profit institutional landlords. Mr. Kellner received considerable attention in 1986 when he revived the Bawdy House Law, first enacted in 1840, and used it as a device where neighbors could seek to evict drug dealers. His use of this law for that purpose was quickly copied by district attorneys and housing authorities throughout the country.

Before he became commissioner, Mr. Kellner was the election lawyer for the Democratic Party in Manhattan. He has argued more than forty election cases before the New York State Court of Appeals, the highest court in the state. Perhaps because of his experience as an election lawyer, he became an outspoken advocate for ballot access reform.

Commissioner Kellner led the opposition to the implementation of the 1992 contract to replace New York City's lever voting machines with electronic voting machines, but he has also been instrumental in promoting new technology for scanning absentee and provisional ballots. He drafted model procedures to open the process of canvassing ballots to public scrutiny and convinced his fellow commissioners to adopt rules that provided meaningful due process in ballot challenges.

Most recently, he led a successful battle to restore devices to New York City'S lever voting machines to prevent voters from leaving the voting machine without casting a valid vote. He has become a voice for reform in an agency that has often been the last to hear that call.

Dan Silverstein, UC Berkeley
- Tutorial 2: Network Surveillance How-To

Weaned on a diet of harsh fluorescent light and Wired magazine, Daniel C. Silverstein came to Berkeley to study computers and revolution. As it turned out, the information revolution of the late nineties dwarfed the inconsequential rumblings of modern student activism. The biggest mistake of his college career was not dropping out soon enough. Thanks to many bright peers, he found that there was more to be learned about computers outside the classroom than in. Silverstein took on several key roles in Berkeley's vibrant student computing community. He remains active behind the scenes. He currently works as a hacker, code-monkey, and bottle-washer for a small MUD company. When not distracted by real world interests, Daniel proceeds inevitably, if somewhat sporadically, toward his undergraduate degree at UC Berkeley.
