Paperlessly so

Messy officeI have an essay in ACM Ubiquity called Time to Get Serious about the Paperless Office, borne out of endless frustration with the communicative and legal aspects of paper. I think we are slowly getting into the situation where paper is the exception rather than the rule. As I stress in the essay, we will not get rid of paper until we get rid of it as metaphor.

I just can’t wait…

(And no, the picture you see here is not from my office, but from a company that apparently specializes in helping people tidy up….)
