When I was training in shorthand and typing before starting my first job, we were told that by the time we started work we would be in the era of the ‘paperless office’. Instead we had the ‘internet revolution’ and the way the world communicated changed out of all recognition. Being a born organiser, I’m rather pleased there is still some paper to push around as well as trying to make sense of, and keep some kind of order in, the digital world.
