Hi! I’m Matt Garland (matt at pet-theory dot com) and I live in Portland and develop web apps with Flex, Flash and Ruby on Rails. Here’s more on me.

This blog applies the concept of interface to politics, and imagines what a user-friendly politics would be. How can we get the most information to the most people in the most convenient way, so they can act on it most effectively?

I plan to put up VoteWithThis.com, an app that will model how citizens could vote directly on tax schedules and federal budgets. The basic idea can be found in the middle of this post. Ping me if you’d like to get involved. I especially need a math and money guy/gal for advice.
