Sunshine Technology

November 20th, 2009 by flanews

Floridas Attorney General is looking for ways to keep track of communications sent electronically.

Blackberry messages sent from Public Service Commission staffers to utility executives shed light on the problems the state encounters trying to track some digital communications. Today a tech guru from Microsoft taught the AGs newly formed Sunshine Tech Team how to capture and store instant messages and other online communications. Sunshine Law Attorney Alexis Lambert says its difficult to track all the different kinds of electronic communications.

Most communication between citizens and the government is done digitally, over the phone, through email, using social networking sights and government wants to be open, accountable and transparent, but we have problems in terms of storage, in terms of making the information public and easy and accessible, rather than having things stored in giant vaults that are easy to navigate, said Lambert.

At the teams next meeting experts will talk about how to track and store messages sent from Twitter and Facebook accounts.
