[ba-unrev-talk] the paperless office

Interesting article in the current issue of "The Economist" called "In
Praise of Clutter".    (01)

Essentially it's on the idea of clutter as an external memory device - using
paper as a means of mapping pre-, or partially, categorized information.    (02)

Makes a number of good points. One is the density of paper as an information
storage medium compared to screens. Another is how much more convenient -
and informative - it is to rearrange pieces of paper on a desk than windows
on a screen. The most interesting area to me is perhaps the application of
technology to filing/retrieval    (03)

Worth a look.    (04)
