During the 2000 U.S. presidential election, Vote-Auction.net offered U.S. citizens an anonymous and quick way to sell their vote to the highest bidder. Because of the threat to the outcome of the election, several U.S. states issued temporary restraining orders for alleged illegal vote trading and consumer fraud. Over 2,500 news media outlets reported on the project. Collaborators: James Baumgartner, Tilmann Singer, Aaron Kaplan, Silver Server, lo-res.org, Oskar Obereder, Christoph Johannes Mutter, hell.com, Bootlab Berlin, Domenico Quaranta.
