This is 2012 and we are still filling forms. At the doctors, at work, for credit, at banks, schools, colleges and probably even at play.

Agile is a very popular document managing system. Why can’t we use it to generate the reports for us. All that we have to do it give the relevant input. As engineers we love to think that an expert system will not fit the needs. But all things we do fit a pattern.
Custom furniture is not custom any more if you break it down to the basic component and give it the 3 dimensions.
We thought the heavier the report the better the score. Is that still true in today’s world?
