Copy crazy

27 March 2007

I sometimes think that the art of taking notes is long dead. I remember going to college, reading books and or journals and taking notes about what I’d read. I rarely, if ever see students doing that any more. Now what they do is print off reams of articles they’ll never read. And photocopy an entire journal. Madness I tells you.

Should lecturers start teaching classes on how not to fill your room with pages and pages and pages of crap?

    They keep going on about a 'paperless office' at work but this will never happen – the number of times I go to the printer and the tray is just full of emails that people have printed off….

    We have students who print our 50 billion copies of their cv, then notice a type and set about printing out another 50 billion. It is a tad annoying.

    Agree that the paperless office is a dream.

    Considering some of the books cost over $100, why not copy it instead of buying? But, I do agree it gets a little out of hand when people make lots of copies of things that will never be read. Professors are the worst about doing that!!
