A little late, but still worth a read. SF writer and paperless/Evernote guru Jamie Todd Rubin finally goes back to the dark side. Or does he?

It had to happen at some point, I suppose. I recently took 2 weeks away from the Internet and used that time to contemplate life, the universe and everything. I re-read Walden by Henry David Thoreau, for instance, so you can imagine my state of mind. Reading Walden made me yearn for simpler times, times when I didn’t have to spend a few minutes each day scanning in paper, times when I could instead lick my fingers and spend hours digging through a filing cabinet looking for a document. I yearn for that kind of simplicity, and what is more simple than paper?
