Solving the problems in the world seems to be an impossible task. For any one of us, that is probably true. But I believe that if we each focus on making our own personal "world" better (whether that is ourselves, our family, or our community), the results will spread and maybe the world will start solving it's own problems.

Podcast Episode 15: Pick a Person
This algorithm is designed to select a random participant from a group by having each participant select a random number.
This allows for a decentralized and tamper proof way to select a random participant.
Following is a brief explanation:
Each Participant picks a number between 1 and the number of participants.
You then take the sum of the numbers and get the remainder after dividing by the number of participants.
The remainder is the participant that is selected. (remainder 0 is the last participant)
