According to The New York Times, weâ€™re closer to a paperless world than most people realize.
Documents can be scanned, photos are all digital, phonebooks are non-existent, and if it canâ€™t be Googled, then it doesnâ€™t exist.
Our computers are quickly becoming the storage solution for almost everything, and paper is falling out of fashion as a means of documentation.
What does this mean for the average person?
Not much now, though in a few years, a Jetsons home may not be such a pie in the sky dream after all.
