As pointed out at the start of a gestural interface
programming book I have, Apple iOS made it possible
to use a fancy computer by using no more than the skills
of a chimpanzee. Ie, simplistic behaviors matching
simplistic, even primitive, use-conceptualization. Could
a model of using encryption be simplified enough that a
UI matching it would make a semi-chimpanzee feel happy
and comfortable using it? If not, would encryption
be used widely even under threat of harm? Unless maybe
the encryption were some kind of automatic and total?
IIRC during the time when electronic voting began to be
in fashion, somebody (blackboxvoting??) posted a video
showing a chimpanzee successfully attacking the vote
accumulation process, actually using a Windows unit, IIRC.
