Office of the Past

Here's the "Simplifind" filing system, for "records that come to you." Today, lots of deskfuls of these records would fit in your pocket on a jump drive!

Wow, that is some filing system. I can just imagine thinking, "now what did I file it under".

Computers were supposed to eliminate paper, but it seems like they generate even more. At least they have eliminated card catalogs in libraries.

Don't think many people want to go back to that sort of system!

I also noticed what "Postcardy" noticed - I think the computer era has generated even MORE paper than it helped to eliminate!

Happy PFF!
