Hear! Hear! Hear!

I was once reading a book. I happened across a particularly interesting
paragraph, and thought it was worthy of being added to my Quotes file.
So I dragged my finger across the paragraph to select it... and only
realized something was wrong when the text failed to light up.

Paper isn't information. It's a *picture* of information. Real
information you can copy and paste. And search.
