Paper trail

The first newspaper office I worked in was a firetrap. In those days of typewriters and teleprinters, paper was piled high on desks, stuffed to overflowing in filing cabinets, layered on floors and tumbling out of rubbish bins. When the first computer showed up a year or so later, talk began that one day in the not-too-distant future, the working environment would be paperless.

Half of traders cheat scavengers
