displays that could send the end of glossy magazines. Why do we still

have any way? The answer might be in the national archives. How much

:01:03.:01:09.

Welcome to Click and welcome to Cambridge. This is Trinity College,

:01:09.:01:17.

which houses almost 300,000 volumes in its library. Perhaps it is at a

:01:17.:01:22.

lake at Cambridge could soon be at the forefront of the paperless

:01:22.:01:30.

revolution. But why has this not happened yet? You would think 1,000

Inside, 180 kilometres of shop space and 11 million records. Most

:02:29.:02:34.

private sector. There is enough of an appetite for

:02:34.:02:41.

online consumption for private companies to put some of the bill.

These will be ready by next year. Commercial manufacture is done in

the Dresden factory but to do it, I am in Cambridge. If you are

:10:20.:10:27.

wondering, this is how it is named. Take a sheet of glass, applying

effectively rules holes into thing to put patterns. The finished

structure is what is there on the media. In this case, an electronic

large screen. If manufacturers are willing to take on new products

:11:38.:11:48.

like this, it will be one more step towards but Allah pay this future.

:11:48.:11:58.
:11:58.:12:04.

-- a low kick and this feature. This means that over the last few

:12:04.:12:13.

years, we were been looking at how we can but plastic transistors

:12:13.:12:17.

universally. The other aspect is to do with working with plastic and

:12:17.:12:24.

then you meet in plastic. There are lots of challenge is a long way if

:12:24.:12:34.

we have overcome them. Of May thinking about flexible displays at

all? This is we can carry eat three per around -- e-for a round that is

:12:53.:12:54.

durable and light weight. This is an excellence it's a thin voice

smartphone. It is all very well having these as a display but

:13:03.:13:10.

something has got to generate the video. At got to be a palace walls.

:13:10.:13:18.

Where are you going to put VAT? We are working with related companies

:13:18.:13:25.

as partners to work on a solution for that. We are looking at having

:13:25.:13:35.
:13:35.:13:37.

the edge of the display includes yet it for next week and activity.

:13:37.:13:47.
:13:47.:13:48.

This does not just apply to plastic, does it? You could use this on

:13:48.:13:52.

anything? Anything could be electronic. There could be an

:13:52.:14:02.
:14:02.:14:03.

electronic display on a table, and cheer. You can her the deal and

:14:03.:14:13.

It's incredible to think this 32gb MicroSD card can hold as much tax

:14:13.:14:17.

as the entire library at Clare College here, that's about 30,000

:14:17.:14:24.

books. Despite the success of this kind of technology there something

:14:24.:14:28.

about paper we humans just loved. Is it a habit that we just can't

:14:28.:14:34.

kick? Back to LJ Rich, who for the past month has been on a quest to

:14:34.:14:39.

go completely paperless. By the looks of things she needs all the

:14:40.:14:45.

help she can get. My life on paper. Around 25,000 sheets of school

:14:45.:14:54.

reports, rejection letters and admin. Nifty technology can store

:14:54.:14:57.

photos, music and video electronically, but paper seems to

:14:57.:15:02.

have been forgotten in the digital revolution. Obviously some of this

:15:02.:15:06.

is worth keeping for historical or sentimental reasons, but there are

:15:06.:15:13.

a few. -- few documents that are best kept on paper. Like certain

:15:13.:15:17.

records and contracts. In fact if you're not sure about getting rid

:15:17.:15:21.

of any original's then check with the relevant organisations first,

:15:21.:15:25.

for example the insurance company or tax office. If you work for

:15:25.:15:28.

yourself chances are you're going to have to keep at least six years

:15:28.:15:35.

of records, possibly more, of Records. But keeping those things

:15:35.:15:38.

electronically is a viable alternative if you're willing to

:15:38.:15:42.

put the time in to get it all up and running. Paul Holstein runs a

:15:42.:15:49.

block about getting organised. -- blog. The sellers are in their 80s.

:15:49.:15:55.

They didn't have a computer. There's no way they themselves try

:15:55.:15:58.

to accept something that is why this or paperless, they needed that

:15:58.:16:03.

paper to sign. We dealt with our side electronically and they dealt

:16:03.:16:07.

with their side on paper and it worked out fine. Getting stuffed

:16:07.:16:12.

into digital form is not too hard. The PDF format is preferred for

:16:12.:16:16.

records retention. Your multi- function printer probably has a

:16:16.:16:20.

scanning functions included and may be able to scan both sides, have a

:16:20.:16:24.

look at the settings to check, but this method takes time if you have

:16:24.:16:27.

a lot to get through. More expensive dedicated scammers to

:16:27.:16:34.

both sides simultaneously, and take out blank pages. Most include

:16:34.:16:36.

software like optical character recognition that converts a picture

:16:36.:16:41.

of text into readable and searchable text. For road warriors

:16:41.:16:45.

they are portable scanners that can scan internal memory from and St

:16:45.:16:50.

card if you don't have a computer with you. But you don't know if it

:16:50.:16:54.

has worked until you plug into a computer. You can even turn your

:16:54.:16:59.

smartphone into a scanner with apps that take advantage of a camera

:16:59.:17:03.

function. Or you can just simply take a photo. But now you have scan

:17:03.:17:08.

everything there's a problem. Yeah, a load of files. There's no point

:17:08.:17:12.

scanning it in if you can't find anything. The professionals say

:17:12.:17:16.

choose a method or naming convention and settle on it, for

:17:16.:17:21.

example, date, client's name, project name. There's no worldwide

:17:21.:17:25.

standard on this. There's no-one single way of doing it. Whatever

:17:25.:17:30.

you decide you must do it consistently. You keep at it. That

:17:30.:17:34.

takes discipline. You can make your own fault a structure in a

:17:34.:17:42.

reference file do so it works like a physical filing cabinet -- --

:17:42.:17:47.

folder. Some programmes promise to organise for you, adding tax or

:17:47.:17:52.

even guessing what to name your file. I have worked out I only need

:17:52.:17:58.

to keep a fraction of my paper life, just one box. Next I will have to

:17:58.:18:05.

make a full back-up and shred anything confidential. Next I have

:18:05.:18:10.

got all this to do. Not exactly paperless, but less paper. After

:18:10.:18:14.

that it is a question of keeping my devices charged up with portable

:18:14.:18:22.

power. The next challenge is convincing everybody else. LJ Rich,

:18:22.:18:27.

who by the way insisted we all go paperless this week, nobody escapes,

:18:27.:18:32.

including me. Anyway, no matter how far you have got with perching your

:18:32.:18:36.

space you will still need to get some online and mobile apps to help

:18:36.:18:41.

keep it paper free. Kate Rosol has been leafing through her book marks

:18:41.:18:46.

for a special paperless Webscape. Question, when was the last time

:18:46.:18:50.

you backed up? If the answer to that is anything more than a couple

:18:50.:18:54.

of days ago then you're probably not ready to go paperless, because

:18:54.:18:59.

if you lose your computer, you lose everything. Luckily we are spoiled

:18:59.:19:03.

for choice when it comes to back-up services, so to help you choose the

:19:03.:19:13.
:19:13.:19:14.

best one for you, here's a wrap up of the four for runners. Backblaze

:19:14.:19:19.

Is a good solution. Data is heavily encrypted and you retrieve it as a

:19:19.:19:25.

zip file, or by ordering a USB from the company. You can try the

:19:25.:19:28.

unlimited service for 15 days, after which there is a monthly

:19:28.:19:33.

subscription. Crash plan is an interesting service that let's you

:19:33.:19:36.

back out free to and always on computer at home or with a family

:19:36.:19:44.

of friend. Available on Mac, Windows, Linux and open Solaris,

:19:44.:19:48.

there are also well priced open storage plans if you don't have any

:19:48.:19:52.

spare people. If you want to back things up like documents and photos

:19:52.:19:57.

drop box is an old favourite that gives you to gigabyte streak going

:19:57.:20:02.

up to 16 gigabytes by referring friends. It is available for Mac

:20:02.:20:08.

and PC with IRE West and smart phones covered. And for $10 a month

:20:08.:20:14.

you can upgrade to 50 gigabytes of storage. Sugar sink is worth a

:20:14.:20:20.

mention as well as it let's you back up any folder on your computer

:20:20.:20:26.

in real time. It also includes apps for Windows seven, Scythian, and

:20:26.:20:29.

the Kindle Fire. With five gigabytes free it is good

:20:29.:20:34.

competition for drop box. And Google Drive might be the new kid

:20:34.:20:39.

on the block but integration with the other' cloud offerings makes

:20:39.:20:46.

this a could kick. You get five gigabytes free with competitive

:20:46.:20:54.

pricing for upgrades. Once you're sorted for back-up, Checkout fresh

:20:54.:20:59.

books to organise your cashflow. The browser interface is a pleasure

:20:59.:21:02.

to use and one sure clients and contracts are in the system it

:21:02.:21:06.

really speaks up dealing and invoicing. You get to drive the

:21:06.:21:11.

full service for up to 25 clients free for 30 days, with $20 a month

:21:11.:21:21.

thereafter. You can add expenses, assign them to a client, and even

:21:21.:21:24.

make up estimates that can be turned into an invoice with a

:21:24.:21:30.

single click. With EC exports, for tax and accounting, this is a

:21:30.:21:34.

powerhouse of this tool that has got all the tedious stuff blinked.

:21:34.:21:39.

Contract workers to build by the how will appreciate time tracking

:21:39.:21:45.

and integration with coverage Sion and base camp makes this a great

:21:45.:21:50.

way to keep on top of time sheets. There's an iPhone app but it comes

:21:50.:21:54.

from a third party and the fourth and version is a bit pricey. The

:21:54.:21:59.

lighter version works great for expenses but you can only access

:21:59.:22:03.

three clients. Support from the developer is and always great. But

:22:03.:22:07.

they are telling me they are fully behind and will offer support where

:22:07.:22:15.

they can. And when you carry your office in your smartphone you had

:22:16.:22:19.

better be fully aware of what the actual downloading will do with the

:22:19.:22:29.

Commission's Hugh Grant. -- the permissions you Grant. Clue for

your downloads keeping you informed of what's being done with your data.

:22:38.:22:41.

Apple does has high standards when it comes to reading out malicious

:22:41.:22:46.

apps, but when you're giving permission to access your contacts,

:22:46.:22:50.

e-mail, Callander, location and social networks, well it's good to

:22:50.:22:54.

know there's an independent pair of eyes looking at your privacy. And

:22:54.:22:59.

not to let down all you Android uses, there's one in development

:22:59.:23:05.

for you as well. Kate Rosol. And as we said, LJ Rich challenged the

:23:05.:23:09.

programme team to make this week's programme entirely paperless, that

:23:09.:23:15.

was fun, let me tell you! To see how we did go to the website. Quite
