LAS VEGAS–The paperless office is a utopian dream. We’re still surrounded by mountains of paper, especially organizationally challenged people like yours truly.

If you’ve lost your birth certificate, for instance, you just look it up on the app that comes with the system, and it’ll tell you what drawer to look in.
