Paperlessness, via the Paper of Record

Big news in The New York Times: Meeting organizers are developing mobile apps for attendees to use on their iPads, smartphones, and other wireless devices. But wait, there's more:
Most bundle a scheduling tool, floor plan and maybe information about local restaurants or a social networking link on their apps. But a handful of organizers have begun to use apps to reduce or even replace the vast amounts of paper they once carried to events.
Where have I heard about this sort of thing before? Oh, right -- at PCMA 2011 Convening Leaders, as reported on this very blog. So not only has our approach to this topic been quite timely, it's also been strictly paperless.
