    It's not surprising if you're in the discipline -- as much as anything
    else, it's the fact that a lot of schools do not count electronic
    publishing as "real publishing", hence it does not count in tenure
    decisions, promotions, pay raises, etc.

    Personally, I'd about 1000 times rather read something on paper than on
    my computer screen, BTW. Also, if I really want to keep the info that I
    find on-line, I print it out and put it in my files....I have about
    twice as much paper now as I did in the days before "paperless offices".
