Tech Vs Paper

As technology has become more involved in our lives we transition away from paper. With applications such as OneNote diminishing the notebook, our phone calendars replacing annual calendars and Outlook replacing letters; it is hard to understand where stationary fits into the modern world.

In some work paper is used more than technology, maybe we don’t want to get to a place where we rely completely on something that we don’t truly understand how it works. At least with paper, you have more control over it. But then what happens if you loose what you’ve written or there is a fire or confidential information that you’ve written down on paper is stolen? Paper information can’t be copied easily unless somebody writes it down multiple times, collaboration is limited.

Technology has the capability to auto-save anything you write down and save versions in the cloud so that nothing can ever be lost. You can invite others to view/edit/collaborate on anything you write or create.

I like having a notebook to physically write in, sometimes it helps me to think when I draw out diagrams on paper instead of staring at a blank screen not knowing where to start.

I want to know what you think is your preference: Tech or Paper?
