As you may have heard, Canadian Carleton University in Ottawa used bitcoin's P2P system to protect votes from any fraudulent behavior. What's your opinion on how it might affect Bitcoin and if it's possible to increase social awareness of Bitcoins through implementation of such systems around the world? Maybe gain trust?

This should not be in Marketplace.

I wonder how they address the 51% security problem (if there's any for them)? Total network power can't be the answer, I don't expect CommitCoin to have a very high priority on people's merged mining pools, but election fraud would be a serious issue...
