Put Down Your Palm Pilots - Back to Paper

daytimerDoug Johnston writes how of all people its the techies (you know who you are) having tried to Get Things Done(tm) with Palm Pilots and AJAX calendars and Ical and Outlook and Entourage and and and….. Its the techies who are now leading the back-to-paper movement:

“Strangely enough, it’s mainly a revolt of tech lovers against their favourite toys, junkies eschewing their drug of choice. It’s painful, it’s heart-wrenching, it flies in the face of our own self-identities, and it makes all our high-tech podium-thumping and evangelising suddenly look hollow.

Trading away the handhelds, tablet PCs and online productivity tools for pens, planners, cards and Moleskines is a leap of faith, like toppling a regime in the hope that the next one will somehow be more benevolent, more attuned to your needs, and offer greater opportunities.”
