Cohen ran the technology behind the effort — a task that was about as easy as building a jigsaw puzzle using pieces that came from a dozen different boxes. Based on that experience, Cohen is now at the head of an open-source software movement that aims to eliminate that problem once and for all. It\’s called the Open Supporter Data Interface, and the goal is to get previously incompatible systems talking to one another in the same way that any PC and any word processor knows what to do with a .doc file. If he succeeds, it could usher in the next chapter in political technology.
