Presidential Tech: Monroe’s Steamboat Ride to the Barackberry

This week,¬†NetworkWorld has a fascinating slideshow of Presidential tech firsts. From James Monroe’s ride aboard the steamboat Savannah to Jimmy Carter’s installation of solar panels on the White House to Barack Obama’s battle to keep his beloved Blackberry while in office (a choice that already seems hilariously old-school), the list serves as a reminder that technology moves fast–even in a building where change can be notoriously slow.

Check out the slideshow for more POTUS tidbits about photographs, radio, the Internet and UFOs. (You heard me.)
