Voting Methods in The Perl Journal
Back in 1996, I wrote an article for The Perl Journal, which they published in the Volume 1, Issue 3 in Autumn 1996. There are several alternatives available for the article:
- A scan I made of my 1996 article “Perl, Politics, and Pairwise Voting: Perl as the Activist’s Friend” — I used CamScanner to make a quick scan of my paper copy, turned it into a PDF, and uploaded it to Dropbox. Contains the cover of the magazine, plus my 8 page article.
- “Games, Diversions & Perl Culture — Best of the Perl Journal” published by O’Reilly Media — edited by Jon Orwant. I’m honored that my article became a chapter in this book. Jon and the O’Reilly editors cleaned it up and made it look sharp. But they ask that you pay for it. My article is chapter 40.
- A foo.be mirror of the 1996 “Perl, Politics, and Pairwise Voting: Perl as the Activist’s Friend” article — This site appears to be an HTML mirror of The Perl Journal. A couple of corrections for the eskimo.com URLs listed therein:
“The Condorcet’s Method Home Page” is still accessable at
The Election Methods Mailing List — still going after 22 years:
For years, I’ve wanted to have stable redistribution of this article, and a stable URL that I could refer to. There have been many URLs over the years to refer to this, but nothing too stable. Well, as of right now, there is a stable URL:
….which, as of this writing, just redirects right back to this blog post. That’s probably the URL I’ll redistribute from now on.
