In the world I see there are no printers; no ink cartridges; no PC-Load letter errors… not that I’ve had them for 10 years.
In the world I see we all have e-book devices with wi-fi connections to our document stashes.
When I’m in a meeting and need to show that document; bam! There it is on my e-book device available for anyone to see. I can edit and annotate live. You want a copy? Let me send it to your e-book reader because none of us use paper any more.
If we lived in the world I see; how much money would we save on paper; ink and other non-sustainable environmental hazards?

I’m giving a presentation on futures in software testing and I want to hand out challenge cards and road maps to help drive home the message after the fact. I would love it if those that cared could get the content direct from my e-book device.
I know we will get there but I’m repeatedly told tales of managers that need paper copies (single sided of course) of documents for review… so that they can be emailed to the eventual recipients.
In the world I see we have blank paper sitting there waiting. Creativity beckoning with the flick of a pen and the leap of faith associated with trying.
Right now we have words on our paper.
