We all instinctively deplore the waste of paper generated by pre-internet bureaucracy, but I daresay that printing something off and putting it in a file cabinet is better for the environment than keeping a server running 24 hours a day so that I can have instant access to it. I love having instant streaming access to all my favorite shows, but could we as a society maybe decide whether the amount of power consumption a Netflix binge produces is worth that convenience gain? Was the internet worth it?
