[ba-unrev-talk] Fwd: [PORT-L] The Myth of the Paperless Office

>From: "John F. Sowa" <sowa@BESTWEB.NET>
>That's the title of a new book.  For more information see
>    http://news.bbc.co.uk/low/english/sci/tech/newsid_1666000/1666325.stm
>Which has some interesting facts from the book:
>"In 1980, a year before the introduction of the IBM PC, world office
>paper consumption stood at 70 million tons. By 1997, the total had grown
>to almost 150 million tons. The upward trend has been maintained over
>the last few years."
>This raises lots of questions about the ease of use of various
>computer interfaces.  The bottom line is that they still aren't
>as good as good old-fashioned paper.
