Best Paperless Office 

Mayor Willie Brown's Office

Newly released statistics from the paper industry indicate that, despite the cyberinformation revolution, the world is using more paper than ever. Sad for trees, but it makes sense: With today's cheap printers any geek with a modem can print out the Bible, the Koran, the complete works of Shakespeare, and entire dirty magazines. And the United States government remains one of the world's biggest wasters of paper, despite oodles of paperwork reduction acts. But the pulp fiends in Washington, D.C., could definitely learn a thing or two from our mayor. Willie Brown does not commit anything to paper, people say; in fact, City Hall observers speculate the real deals go down as furtive whispers inside the noisy movie theaters Brown frequents in the afternoon.
