George Jonas: Goodbye to paper, death and taxes

Abstract:
Goodbye, the Zeroes; hello, the Teens. Here's to three things that are becoming obsolete in 2010: paper, death and the facsimile.

Medical science is still hard at work extending life. So is public hygiene. By the 1980s there were about as many 100-year-olds living in North America as there were 65-year-olds in the 1900s, according to the doyen of Canada's insurance agents, the late David Cowper. Now the floodgates have been opened. Nanotechnology will soon float automated probes through our veins for diagnosis and repair. Genetically engineered spares will replace worn parts. The day is approaching when there will be as many 135-year-olds as there are centenarians today.
