Google already has vehicles scanning all of our streets. I think they can handle scanning mail with some giant super robot.Right on.. though in my case, I'd prefer to manage my mail selectively. Most of it can be scanned and made available online with an option to export into Google Docs. Other, more personal/handwritten mail I'd like to simply forward to my current address. In case of parcels, I'd like to choose whether to accept it individually, in bulk, or send back to sender. I'd also like to keep indefinite history of my mail for reference purposes, whether it is a scanned copy or simply address and date of arrival.
I agree. We don't, as paper VS. digital is mostly psychological. Unfortunately we are not there yet, as there is still a lot of paper going around. So having a virtual PO box service could help streamline things in that direction. In any case, we've got to have a better solution than 'mail forward' for every address change..Why do we need mail? I only want package service.
