Sometimes I really wonder how humans resist progress. Although some species have high speed internet, the latest flat screen TV, a car with GPS navigation system, hard disk recorders for TV programs, the latest top-notch kitchen equipment, BUT they have their emails printed by their secretaries, they ask me to issue hard copy invoices sent by snail mail and stuff like that? On the other hand they complain about pollution and the CO2 issue. Well, ... wouldn't paperless business actually help? Just a little bit, but everything counts! I am quite glad for example that in the ICAO Instrument Flight Procedures Panel we are quite advanced and hold paperless meetings. All working papers are published on the panel website, which we can acess during the meeting. No hardcopies issued, no nonsense. Now THIS is what I call progress.
