Thinking on paper

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.
