In Defense of Paper

4 Jan

Thus far, no one has come up with a digital solution that measures up to paper for:

* Spreading a newspaper or magazine across the kitchen counter, so the whole family can catch up on the news together.

* The school lunch menu, posted on the refrigerator.

* Elementary school homework, with smiley stickers and gold stars.

* School newsletters.

* Report cards.

I embrace the digital just about everywhere. But nothing kills family time like kids and grownups zoning out over screens. No media promotes live, in-person conversations like paper.
