50years from today papers and hard copies will almost or totally disappeared from Advanced or developing nations. The people who read papers or hard copies today are Adults or Older folks and 50years from today most of them would have gone unless scientists discover longevity vitamin. A kid of 12 or 13 years old would be 72 or 73year old in 50years with tablets and other gadgets surrounding them and if there are papers it be minimal and probably more in countries who refused to advance themselves because of corruption and bad leadership of epic proportion. The transition from papers to paperless is on the move and five decades is enough time for 90% completion.
The only problem that will be encountered is the present adults who will be very old and the difficulty of operating the paperless system. Would common people be able to afford it? Would thieves take advantage of seniors with such gadgets then? Should “gadgetary” be introduced into our school curriculum or should consultancy firms who will train the aging population be put in place? This could help our forests regain their natural form and support the ecosystems. What will be the most important benefit of paperless world to man? Your thoughts folks?
