This article discusses the poll for Time magazine’s Person of the Year award, and that Miley Cyrus is currently in the lead. However, it also brings up an issue that is relevant to class discussion. Two hackers are taking credit for developing a way to bypass the “one vote per person per day” rule and instead cast multiple votes a day for Miley, influencing her lead. This raises the question of security on the internet, as Time also mentioned that they have had issues with their POY poll being hacked in the past. This brings the legitimacy of the poll into question, and the issue of how to prevent the poll from being hacked in the future, if it is possible. Another interesting part from the article is that Snowden is currently in third in the voting, though he is 20% behind Miley.
