a president's low tech life

Before [Barack Obama] arrives at the White House, he will probably be forced to sign off [of his BlackBerry]. In addition to concerns about e-mail security, he faces the Presidential Records Act, which puts his correspondence in the official record and ultimately up for public review, and the threat of subpoenas. A decision has not been made on whether he could become the first e-mailing president, but aides said that seemed doubtful.

He hopes to have a laptop computer on his desk in the Oval Office, making him the first American president to do so.


Seriously, though, it doesn't seem like all this is really necessary. Want to record everything everything for public review? Write and install a keylogger or something. Use a proxy to channel data through, importing private keys into the proxy as necessary so that they can decrypt / encrypt data as necessary.
