@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 :-)

 

walu.

 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.
