Here a post on "paper thinking."
One of the characteristics of "paper thinking" identified by the author is "a human in every loop." Wikis are supposed to be an alternative.
I am not sure that "paper thinking" is as limiting as the author seems to think. Perhaps it is true that it "will become a constraint in the face of increasing scale of data-intensive and data-centric research and increasing automation - a problem we are already beginning to have."
But constraints are not necessarily bad.
