But how will us mega-millionaires foolishly waste our money?

From Steven Levy, a columnist for Newsweek: Electronic writing threatening to end the practice of collecting authors' original papers. I always find it hilarious that only scholars and collectors are worried about this issue; I've never met a single actual creative writer who cared about the lack of paper artifacts of their work, and most in fact instead love that they can input their work electronically, instead of the much more laborious practice of handwriting it on a sheet of paper first.
