George McCalip on "Fomenting Revolution for Fun and Profit."
Since March 2001, George McCalip has
a website about fighting traffic tickets. This pro bono site has
helped many people beat their tickets.
Over the last few years, he and some
bright legal minds have conceived a plan to end the "tickets for revenue
scam" in California through a series of lawsuits.
McCalip believes that this is not about
traffic tickets; it's the next American revolution.
George McCalip is the founder of the
California Legal Rights Fund, an educational nonprofit charged with educating
Californians about their rights.
In 1995 he fought a speeding case that

He's worked with microcomputers/PC's
for over three decades, managing projects for IBM, HP, Intel, AST Sharp,
Xerox, Minolta, Proficient Foods (Denny's), TRW, Western Digital, and the
City of Philadelphia. He produced a successful multimedia catalog
in 1992, before the World Wide Web. He managed the initial feasibility
study of the Super Shuttle.
He formed the ad-hoc committee behind
the successful campaign to bring the 1984 Olympic Velodrome to Cal State
