WHAT WILL HAPPEN TO PAPER AND PEN? I think paper and pen will live on for a long, long time. In fact, for certain purposes, paper is enjoying a renaissance today, which I write about in my book. Have you noticed how popular those European-made Moleskine notebooks have become in the last decade? I carry one in my back pocket and use it all the time. In a screen-driven world, writing on paper can feel kind of wild and subversive.
BLACKBERRY OR iPHONE? Neither! I've resisted getting a smartphone. I just don't want to be within reach of the Internet — or my inbox — all the time. I use a basic clamshell-style cellphone that does voice, texts and photos, period. That's all I want in my pocket.
