Paper As A Luxury Good?

It was surprisingly difficult to find a decent, high-quality notebook here in the heart of Taipei. I went to almost a dozen stores before finding one.

I was thinking, "What is this, is paper a luxury good here in Taiwan?"

And then it occurs to me -- maybe paper will be a luxury good in a few years. Probably tablet computers and other computing surfaces will be good enough at that point so that the loss isn't strongly felt... but it's not hard to envision a world where a standard paper notebook costs between $5 and $7, and you have to go to a specialty store to get it.

Oreo Gallery Renovation

On Where Pianos Roam

This is just a quick note to say that the Oreo Gallery will be down over the next couple of days for renovation and to upload a brand new (and rather lengthy) episode.
