Eliminating paper from my work and life with Google Drive

Farid Mheir's insight:

A blog post that describes tools and solutions to help become paper free.

 

WHY THIS IS IMPORTANT

There is no need for paper anymore and solutions like this show that it is possible to go paper free quite easilly especially given the ubiquitous availability of mobile phones and cloud internet access. I have been doing much of these steps since 2010 when I acquired a fujitsu scansnap paper scanner and started to systematically scan every document I receive via snail mail.

Farid Mheir's insight:

Major win. With this finally we'll be able to leverage google to search within books. This will also, over time, bring to the digital world all the books that have been printed but will never be edited digitally.


AFAIK, google also uses this to improve its google translate accuracy. And I assume other as well. 


This win also is a major step for user privacy: it means that the web is not a free for all place where anyone can do anything. With proper rules, we can leverage digital without leaving on the table copyrights. I believe this will also be true for personal information and privacy. Over time.


One small step for google, a giant leap for mankind!
