Chris G. Williams Beware: I mix tech and personal interests here.
Here's my vote of no confidence for Obama and McCain. I think we're hopelessly screwed no matter which one you vote for.

Andy (The ZMan) Dunn initially suggested it, and it makes sense, so I've decided to run for office in 2012. I know it seems a little early, but trust me... raising that kind of capital takes time... and while you might think I'm joking now, in four years you'll be ready for me... guaranteed.

Shortly after announcing my intent (via Twitter, follow me @chrisgwilliams) to run in the 2012 Presidential Race on the Geek ticket, my respected colleague Andy Leonard (@AndyLeonard) announced his candidacy on the Nerd ticket.

I've already named an excellent running mate, RachelAppel (@RachelAppel on Twitter) who stands for the same things I do and all geeks should.

We've got a campaign manager, Amanda Laucher (@Pandamonial) who will be busy lining up public appearances and making key introductions to all the right people. After all, it's never to soon to start thinking about the future.

A vote for Williams / Appel in 2012 is a vote that says "Hey, you've already proven we can do a lot worse!"

You got my vote... Any one that can code a rouge-like deserves to be president!

I'll need a platform statement before I can hand you my vote.

What do you think the most important issues of 2012 are? I assume you've already built a garage device that will allow you to travel to 2012 in order to make that decision.

Where do you stand on the Android / iPhone debate?

Corollary: Are you a Mac, PC, or Penguin?

How will the geek party reach across party lines to woo the nerd vote?
