Stephen Manes writes about the advantages of storing photos and documents on paper! Paper? Of all things... imagine that! I guess my dream of a less-paper office may be unrealistic.

He does make some good points about compatibility. Who knows if JPGs are still going to popular enough to be supported by future applications? I've been converting all my documents to PDFs. What will happen if Adobe goes under or some new standard takes over? I guess I'll just have to keep converting the files to whatever the new standard is. Not a big deal as long as I do it before the old standard (PDF) has lost all support.
