No printing your autobiography

Currently at Douglas College, students can print for free.

I’ve just heard that starting in the fall, there will be a 300 page per student limit on free printing.

I think that’s great.

Currently, students print off volumes of pages. Only about half of it ever gets into a recycling bin.

Where’s this paperless society I was promised 10 years ago?

  1. whoa, free printing? Dude. Langara students pay 10 cents per page. (Or something like that. I only used it once.)

  2. Shit, I wish I could print for free. It would really help with those freaking 22 page English papers I have to read in order to write my own. =/.

    Speaking of which, I hate papers. Even ones about sexuality. There, I said it. I just keep clinging to the fact that it will all be worth it in the end.

  3. that suck.

  4. what? sex in the end?

  5. Maybe. Hopefully. Probably not.

    Having a higher education, on the other hand…

  6. the more people can produce paper – the more they will… and the more beaurocracy will require.
    That’s what happened to the paperless society.

    and yes I’ve sat in on meetings on just that… Noone can find “anyone” to blame.
    there is a key factor for beaurocracy though: if a signature is required, it must be printed.
    (hmm. my spelling needs retraining. right…)

  7. I always found it funny that photocopying cost money at douglas and printing didn’t
