…The paperless home is in our future?

Paperless Home

According to The New York Times, we’re closer to a paperless world than most people realize.

Documents can be scanned, photos are all digital, phonebooks are non-existent, and if it can’t be Googled, then it doesn’t exist.

Our computers are quickly becoming the storage solution for almost everything, and paper is falling out of fashion as a means of documentation.

What does this mean for the average person?

Not much now, though in a few years, a Jetsons home may not be such a pie in the sky dream after all.
