[liberationtech] Fwd: UK Jobs And Collaboration: Local Data Lab + Curious Fact About White House Petitions

Hi Ceci and all,

Like many, many others (6.829.512 and counting) I saw the video "Let's
make the Netherlands second" and found it hilarious.
I also tried to sign the petition.
Same here... there was only one signature and after signing my signature
did not get registered.
I tried a second time, using a US IP address.
After signing the site clearly stated "You've successfully signed the
petition below. Your signature has been verified and counted."
But still I don't see the counter move from '1 signed' to '2 signed'.

Yes, the petition is jocose but it's also a political statement/reaction.
Let's call all our friends to sign...

As a Belgian it would be great to see the Netherlands be second ;-)
