We know. It sucks. You haven't even stepped into a bridal shop yet and you're already wide-eyed at the cost of all the paper you've got to think about. Save the dates, place cards, table plans, escort cards. Not to mention the invitations themselves!

If we feel that we are engaging with people on a level basis, because we can or want to help them or for purely social reasons, there are no issues. But as soon as we have a desired outcome, we start to feel uncomfortable.

Paper Chase

"You can't cancel!" shrills the voice on the phone. "It's in the diary. That's final!" Though I'm hardly a model of reliability, it is my friend who flakes on our arrangements most, and I'm offended by the implication of her words. What does she mean 'I can't cancel'? Why does she care suddenly?

The Iron Mountain study revealed that over half (57 per cent) of firms do nothing with customer communications that arrive on paper. Instead, they wait until we grow sufficiently frustrated to phone or email to ask why nothing's happened, and only then do they act.

What's your biggest gripe when it comes to customer service? Automated answering machines? Long wait times? Being shunted from department to department? Being forced to follow up over and over again?

Imagine the situation: you're on the train to a meeting, going over some papers and you need to leave the carriage to go grab a coffee from the buffet car. What do you do with your briefcase? You'll only be gone two minutes and your laptop is safely stowed in the office, so what's the harm in leaving it on your seat?

Paper: The Future of Facebook?

Paper itself is a fairly straightforward news-curation/publishing app, but its launch and recent comments from Mark Zuckerberg about further releases in the near future paint a fascinating picture of Facebook's possible future, one which may be quite different from the ubiquitous social platform we're all so familiar with.

To Preserve the Power of Paper We Need to Turn to Technology

Christian Toon | Posted 19.02.2014 | UK Tech

There's something about paper. Not the crisp-sheet-of-A4-fresh-from-the-printer kind of paper, but the slightly crumpled, much-read kind that carries precious words or a faded picture of someone no longer part of our lives, but who once meant everything. The kind of paper that dreams and memories and even history are made of.

Why Are They Called 'Smart' Phones Anyway?

I must at this stage confess, I have an iPhone 4S. A bizarre statement to make while trying to recruit members of my anti-smart phone army, but bear with me. I have only had it since December and, no, it wasn't my choice.

Is Your Degree More Than Just a Piece of Paper?

We live in a world where pragmatism dominates idealism. Does a nurse or an accountant provide more value to society? When faced with a question like this, the idealists among us would question the definition of "value". By contrast, the pragmatists would revert to the only objective benchmark available and declare that six figures are better than five.

It's Time to Crash the High-Tax, Non-Growth, Pseudo-Green Party - Who's Coming With Me?

I thought you'd be interested in this party because you'll actually be footing a lot of the bill. Not just now, or at the event, but for the foreseeable future too. You and the world's poor that is (the 99%, if you will), funding a jaunt for European paper producers to talk shop on protectionism and how they'll continue to racketeer from developing nations.
