On a more serious note - the "electronic office" of the 90s actually used more paper. Before email, a single memo would be typed and circulated among the department (cc'd rarely meant actually making carbon copies for all). After email - everyone would print out the email!
Even as late as 2007, I had a coworker who printed out every single email she rec'd and filed them all. Yes, even the announcements.

ThinkGeek: "E-mail has been around since before computers. At first, e-mails were written on rocks and thrown at neighbors. CC-ing a rock e-mail could be dangerous for an entire village. Then, e-mails were written on paper and put in weird paper things called envelopes and the postal system delivered them. This was slow. Finally, e-mail as we know it came around."

The New York Times ran an interesting article about this in which the point was made that information on paper ages gracefully: it may get yellow and brittle, but you can still "decode" it.
On the other hand, e-information: when it's gone, it be GONE! They also mentioned that statistically, more information has been utterly lost via computers than via the printed medium.

Thanks for the laugh!
I try not to print too much, but sometimes I just have to scribble on the paper to get the ideas down. And sometimes paper is just faster and more efficient.
