The Resurrection Filing System

A geek friend regularly wrestles with a back-risking plastic tub of technical files.  Several conversations down the road, we realized that he could organize and displace those bulky pounds of paper simply by putting them into dead storage or shredding them. All the print-outs came off the net, and though it will cost a few dollars here and there to download fresh versions, the fees will be the cheapest way to rationalize and maintain the storage system. The underlying concept is to use a virtual assistant, a la Timothy Ferris: earn in dollars, spend in a cheaper currency. Automated digital service is cheap indeed and infinitely faster than sorting and processing with highly skilled and educated biological digits. The time saved can be used to prepare healthy, inexpensive meals at home
