LOL

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.

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.
