Are people really that shocked by this paperless transition? It's been inevitable for a long time now. I think the character "Egon," from the movie Ghostbusters, said it best. "The printed word is dead." That movie came out in 1984. Personally, I've never once sat down and read a newspaper, not counting my school's, which is more of a social thing, but I digress. I have so many more efficient mediums from which to capture news (my computer, iPhone, TV, etc.) that I don't have the need for a heap of dead trees and ink to get connected to the world. I understand how some people are traditional or have a nostalgic appetite for print media, it's just not for me, or the majority of my generation apparently. Switching to paperless mediums is a good idea for the environment too--think of all the resources we can save. Going paperless seems like a great idea all around. I am definitely a paperless person.
