Interesting article. I remember writing an essay as part of my A level computing course on this subject.
That was about ten years ago and I remember saying that everything would soon be on computer with no need for anything on paper. Yes I was a little naive! (and cue older RISC OS users telling me they said similar 20 years ago ;0) )
As I write these comments I'm in work where theres litterally mountains of paper!
I think part of the problem is more cultural rather than technological. Based on the attitudes of my work colleagues I think quite a few people will never trust the computer not to lose their work so will always make print outs of their important work. (and yes they are all pc users!)
