And prior to the widespread introduction of the photocopier and email,
multiple copies required carbon paper or mimeograph. Yes, it was more
work to produce a memo, but on the other hand, you had to be more
discriminating about what you wrote memos about and how many people
you cc'd on them. I was able to come in every morning at 9:00 and have
*all* my mail, outside and interoffice, read by 9:30.
