I've made a large effort to reduce my file cabinets and boxes full of 
old papers to digital form. For me it's an issue of trying to get free 
of clutter, and have the stuff in an easily searchable form.

I'm happy to no longer have the mess that subscribing to the newspaper 
brings. I've also run huge piles of my old magazines through the scanner 
and then into the recycling.

Speaking about undisclosed identity, readers of this NG will no doubt
have some strong views on these new, almost-first-in-the-western-world,
laws that have just come into effect in South Australia.
