Question: “I’ve been a temporary admin in many different offices since 2009, and I really haven’t noticed the slightest reduction in the amount of paper all over people’s desks, brought out in meetings, and in use all over the office. My boss just mentioned that he’s thinking about starting a ‘paperless office’ initiative, but to me it doesn’t seem necessary or even desired. I think we’ve all underestimated how comfortable people feel with paper and how much we still want it. Isn’t a project like this just going to wind up being totally fruitless?” – Maeve, Accounts Payable
