Sorry - my post was intended to be an expression of amusement in response to Bill’s.

I needed a pen to fill out my mail-in ballot in the recent election, and realized that not only did I not have one, I hadn’t even TOUCHED a pencil or pen in the last 5 years. Any handwriting that I do, I do on my touchscreen laptop or my iPad. It was a startling realization for someone born in the 1950’s. Everything that I do, including banking & contracts, is done electronically.

So, no, I don’t write on paper.

Ha, that’s quite impressive!

I still have pens, but I’m regularly frustrated to find that most of them dried up long ago and no longer work… :-(

I have a theory.
if you prefer to work when your head is looking down you’ll prefer paper even though it may make take more time.
if there’s no advantage for you to work with your head down then you’ll find more value working digitally.


Very ironically, there’s now lots of formerly young, now dead people, running into cars or into buses, looking down, but not on paper…


Page 1 there
“Filtering, searching, undoing…”
1) Filtering - you can organize the information so you don’t have to filter using multiple criteria.
2) Searching - I checked that I can find any word in a dictionary nearly as fast as my computer.
3) Undoing - you can use pencil and eraser.
...and the list goes on…

Well… “not really”, as they say now, and his 1 and 2 refutations are VERY untrue… (as for 3: smudgy at the very least…)

But then, there is NO complete system, see and read here:


Yeah, that’s convoluted… I wouldn’t hire him, even for free, but that’s just me…

And yes, I understand the problem, fully (, just not how he’s trying to resolve it, but what I think I understand from it, seems very wrong to me).

And I even know how it should be done. To every detail. And it’s even quite easy to code, but then, conceptual work has never been a strength of coders.
