>> Predictions that paper would disappear in the 1970s in favor of electronic documents were wrong

That's because no-one's ever given us E-paper. I don't want or need a whole forest of paper to be re-used after a single day (or whatever arbitrary number they set). I just want a single big sheet of foldable, high contrast (equivalent to todays paper-paper) E-paper that I can re-use whenever I see fit. I need it to be able to update wirelessless whatever data I happen to want (e.g. page 7 of the NYT), through a simple interface. And I need it be inter-active. If I double-tap a word, for instance, I want it to provide me with a definition, or perhaps wiki article, about that word. This reusable paper doesn't even come close.

At the source of every error which is blamed on the computer you will find at least two human errors, including the error of blaming it on the computer.
