Looking for me outside of Google+? I have a Facebook page for my friends. I have a Twitter feed (https://twitter.com/danwallach) where I post things for the public. I occasionally blog at Medium (https://medium.com/@dwallach). And of course I have my professional home page (https://www.cs.rice.edu/~dwallach/), which links to all those and whatever's coming next.

I teach a voting class once every two years with my colleagues Bob Stein and Mike Byrne. I wrote a lecture about gerrymandering. Some of you may enjoy these slides: www.cs.rice.edu/~dwallach/gerrymandering.pdf

I wrote a piece at Freedom to Tinker about blockchains and voting: Blockchains are a helpful primitive, but they don't solve the problem. https://freedom-to-tinker.com/2017/09/12/blockchains-and-voting/
