I remember that day well
the media was full of it,
a new generation of computers
was the talk of the day.
With the dawning of a new age
came the portable storage devices,
technology claimed, first steps
towards a paperless office.
With new computers, came add-ons
from storage drives to data sticks,
so the roller coaster ride
of new technology had begun.
Fancy claims of paper reduction
twenty five years later, no change
we receive as much post, if not more
mostly generated by technology.
Is the day of the paperless society
just around the corner,
or are we to wait
another twenty years, or more!
