Observing the general populace of computer users, it seems so common for people to print out the world. Why, oh WHY do people print out all their email, and then go on a websurfing expedition and print out everything they see there? Wasn't the digital age supposed to make us "cyberaware" and "paperless"? Oh my. The gross waste of paper and ink in homes, offices and (especially) institutions of higher learning across the globe must reach an appalling measure. Back it up, save it on a CD, a diskette, a ZIP, whatever, but please refrain from printing every last item no matter what the infinitesimal worthlessness of the information.
