The Paper Renaissance

GOVIS 2007, Wellington, New Zealand, 2007-05-11

In the second of my talks at the GOVIS 2007 conference, I spoke about Exbiblio - a project to bring paper documents to life by giving them digital capabilities.

You can watch it directly here, if you should be so inclined, or there are links below to versions you can download and play in QuickTime or iTunes if wanted.

I’m intrigued by how much has changed since I gave that talk.  The combination of better sheet-fed scanners, improved OCR, and widely-deployed search technology has revolutionised the way I deal with paper.  Here’s a more recent video showing what I do with paper now.
