Doc is on a mission to help rid your organization of every last trace of document management ignorance and make sure that the future of the digital office finds a home in your business.
<p>ZDNet introduces Doc (The DocuMentor), sponsored by RICOH. Through his blog, Doc will educate you about Document Management. So who is Doc? Doc is something of an enigma. He was born to a Russian ballerina and a German electrical engineer who some believe was running covert operations for shadowy corporate interests. Doc grew up in various locations in the United States, although no one seems to know precisely where, least of all Doc. His early schooling was unremarkable except for the time he was caught trying to replace all the mimeograph machines with high-tech color copiers that had mysteriously disappeared from a shipment to Albania. At MIT, he made a name for himself by transforming a large printer into a robot that hunts and eats Roombas. Professionally, he reportedly has seen the insides of more brands, versions, and generations of printer and printer-related hardware than almost anyone. Some say his obsession with paper, printing, and mechanical movement was either started by, or evidenced by, a traumatic childhood episode when he crawled inside an old Xerox 2400 and tried to print himself.</p> <p>Anyway, Doc has hands on experience with stuff like printer maintenance and fleet management, but his mastery of document management leaves no stone unturned. Important issues like sustainability, security, and regulatory compliance are top of mind for Doc, as are other business technology needs like networking and IT services, making him a true blue IT renaissance man. </p>

Doc loves Dropbox and services like it, and agrees that for many projects a PDF file or native Office file can be just as effective (or maybe more so) than a printed version. But, for many things, print is still the vehicle of choice, like it or not.
Doc's not sure if these declines are a long-range trend or just a result of the down economy. Either way, it's not good news for commercial printing.

I'm an old guy who grew up when paper was king and digital was something that applied to technology used in the Apollo space program.So with guys like me around, I think print will survive for some time.
