Truth's out. I have a paper hoarding problem. instead of piling it high in the basement, I've been scanning it all away at a high resolution. After the ghost of each scrap gets filed away, tagged with a cryptic title (e.g. 216114), I then throw it away. I am not one to hold on to things, so why I stow away ipod case receipts is kinda stupid. I realize the technology I am currently working with will be obsolete in five years. My little external hard drive might even get corrupted somehow. My problem is irrational, I don't NEED an inner cover to an old encyclopedia, but the texture of the paper and the aging patterns are so beautiful, why would i want to give it up.
