Quitting paper and email

Chris Smith at Lifehack.org starts his paperless new year

The idea of ‘the paperless office’ has turned into a joke, an aspiration for the future on a par with hoverboards, jet packs and little robots that do your housework (oh, wait a minute). I believe, though, that we really should give this a go – it can’t be beyond us, surely? Here, Chris starts his year the right way, though you can’t help but think it’s all a bit small potatoes.

Thoughts from a TechCrunch columnist on quitting email for a month last year

He admits to having cheated a little, but still, an interesting exercise and one I’d love to have a go at. I hate email. Some really interesting ideas on the failings of email, and what a more Twitter DM-ish, Facebook Message-ish email system might look like, “Gmail Lite”.
