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

Hi, Bram!  :)

I've also received the message "You've successfully signed the petition
below. Your signature has been verified and counted.", but the petition
only shows 1 (one) signature.  Some friends of mine also signed the
petition, received the verification e-mail and  - tcharan! -  the same
wonderful message, but the petition did simply not receive more signatures
until the present moment.  WTF?  :P

Pretty bizarre, isn't it?  :P
