We’re catching up with the “Cool stuff being made” videos, here is the first one – “Years ago, with the advances in electronic communications and commerce, the futurists all predicted that we would soon be in a “paper-less” society. Yet here we are in 2006, using a s much paper as ever. Way back when, the blogger-in-chief went through a paper plant when he was just a boy, and it really left an impression. It was really cool to see logs come in one end of the plant and rolls of paper go out the other end. Paper really is made out of wood after all. It’s one thing to know it, it’s entirely another thing to see it. In this 10-minute video, you’ll see it go from wood and wood chips, to pulp and ultimately to paper.” [via] – Link.
