So, we have a massive, complex infrastructure of wires and cables connecting every house, digital audio and video streaming through the air directly into our lounge rooms, high speed mobile networks putting the internet in our pockets... and yet, daily, huge factories work through the night to print yesterday's news onto huge sheets of paper, cut it up, roll it up, wrap in it plastic, load it up onto trucks, drive it to every suburb, hand it to another guy who jumps in his car and drives up and down every single street to throw these things out his window and onto our front lawns, just to add to the pile of others that no one picked up to read the last 17 times he did this.
