SERIOUS MONDAY: GREAT INVENTION – OR POINTLESS EXERCISE

There has been much excitement in the past few days about a breakthrough which will apparently allow printer paper to be re-used instead of recycled.

Xerox is working on a technique that will see printed documents self-erase after 24 hours – allowing the paper to be fed through the printer again.

Sounds wonderful in theory but I can foresee lots of fun such as offices inadvertently using the erasable stuff and then realising they’ve ‘lost’  important paperwork or, better still, mailrooms opening envelopes to find blank pieces of paper inside. 

Research is still continuing but it seems the development will require a new type of printer and special ink. 

Personally, I don’t print out any document unless I really need to – and surely, that’s a much better answer than expensive research followed by the manufacture of a new breed of printer? Simply educate people not to press the print button unless it’s vital to have a hard copy.
