@Rad!

Wake up. Ofcourse you and I (hassler?) are "past the mentality of thats how it has always been".  But believe you me, you would see it differently when you will one day sit on the "greener" side of life :-)

 But surely
 we are past the mentality of "that's how it has
 always been done".
 Given that the bid bond is 500,000,
 and a bid bond is usually a fraction of the budget, how much
 money are we spending airlifting speeches where a simple PDF
 attachment to email will suffice? Especially given we are
 complaining about runaway government spending?

 Worse still if the US can listen to our Presidents
 conversation (good to know we are the league of German Prime
 Minister :-), what is it we are trying to hide in a
 presidential speech that would be public knowledge before
 the end of the day :-)
 
 
 
 
 This question came up in a previous ConnectedKenya summit in
 Mombasa but was never convincingly answered. But I think the
 answer is simple.  There has been a budget to airlift the
 presidents speech since independence. What has been changing
 is not the technology, but who gets (eats?) that budget
 :-)

  There are plenty of
 
  techniques and tools to cryptographically sign and send
 
  documents.
