Trends analyst Arnold Brown chuckles when someone mentions the paperless office. "I think we'll see it with the Second Coming," he says. "The paperless office is going to require a massive mutation of the human species. We need to have paper; we need hard copy." In the late 1970s and early '80s, "paperless office" and "office automation" were major buzzwords. Newspapers, magazines and trade journals used up forests writing about how computers would make the printed word obsolete. Some office gurus predicted that secretaries and clerks would become as obsolete as hatpins and that file cabinets and in-boxes would become museum curiosities.

Is paper dying? As a columnist, I've been receiving an alarming number of similar questions from people in all sorts of businesses, educators and even social groups. It seems they share a frustration in trying to communicate using paper. In fact, printing anything on paper these days just doesn't seem to have the communications impact it used to have only a few short years ago. Perhaps it's a byproduct of our electronic age. More and more of us are corresponding via e-mail and seeing everything via the Internet.

Ever since the story broke about a collector finding a copy of the first printing of the Declaration of Independence worth $1 million tucked behind an old painting in a frame he bought at a flea market for $4, people have been ransacking their attics, basements, libraries and closets for another copy of what is considered the most important single printed sheet in the world.What they have found for the most part are worthless souvenir copies on crinkly parchmentlike paper that have been sold for years at Independence Park or the National Archives.

Although it's not unusual for young artists to come a long way fast in the hyperactive and hype-filled contemporary art scene, Mike and Doug Starn have shot to the top so fast that you can't be blamed for doing a double take.These 29-year-old identical twins have been busy making their medium-expanding photographic assemblages since the mid-1980s, but widespread recognition has only snowballed since their inclusion in the 1987 Whitney Biennial.Now an extensive survey exhibit of their work has touched down at the Baltimore Museum of Art. Somehow the designation of this as a "mid-career" survey doesn't quite seem the right term for artists who can watch the TV series "thirtysomething" for future guidance.
