The Paperless Hacker

The Paperless Hacker.

By Tim O'Reilly

Jason Hunter's latest article on, “Personal Document Management Made Easy,” is a great example of my thesis that “alpha geeks” tell us something about the shape of the future. Jason describes how he's done away with filing paper documents by scanning everything and keeping the scanned documents in a Perforce repository. It's an alpha geek “life hack,” but it also does say something about our digital future. Today's hack is tomorrow's mainstream application (or at least a feature of tomorrow's mainstream application.)  [O'Reilly Radar]
