Excellent post!

I suppose the nay sayers (i.e. the people opposing emerging technologies) made similar arguments when the world moved from paper based memos to email for official use. The memos were filed in a in a locked filing cabinet. And any type of tampering was fairly evident. But once we moved electronic mail, there was no locked metal filing cabinet. Everything resided on a user’s PC, which could be infested with malware and rootkits. How do you know that some rootkit was not modifying or deleting the user’s emails?

The rules of investigation and evidence collection changed with the introduction of email, and same will happen when we move to other emerging technologies for communication and collaboration.

Things change.

Having said this, instead of changing attitudes, we need to influence the right attitude about emerging technologies.
