[liberationtech] decloudification: reverting to typewriters?

  If you need something typed, but don't want it to be easily stolen,
typewriters would be a good option.  However, if the goal is to prevent
leaking, then that's not really going to work.  It's not difficult to xerox
something or take a photo and then leak *that*.  Cameras can be very tiny,
and portable scanners can be hidden in a jacket pocket or under a pant leg.

  Security hasn't disappeared just because we default to using technology.

  The Kremlin's a big place though. Ordering just four typewriters doesn't
necessarily mean that they've changed security or tactics.  I do have to
wonder if they're just replacing other typewriters... or maybe the recent
leakstravaganza has made them reconsider their own policies :D
