White House Tech Is Lame

There's a great story in today's Washington Post about how the new White House staffers have been hamstrung in getting started with their new jobs because of the outdated technology in use at the White House.

Check for yourself, even the blog on the spiffy new hasn't been updated since Inauguration Day.

I understand the need for security and to adhere to the law, but something has got to change here. It's the 21st century and it's difficult enough to run something as large as the federal government without making the task even more difficult by using outmoded technology. If the rules or laws need to be changed then let's get them changed. The new Administration needs all the tools it can get to get the government and the country back on track.

At least the President will get to keep his Blackberry.
