Donald Knuth: Happy man since 1990 without an email address (stanford.edu)

He has email address, but he does not use it to reply. His secretary prints out all messages. For environment's sake, he should start using email and avoid lot of paper wastage.

It's just my opinion.


Quote from the site:

  I have been a happy man ever since January 1, 1990, when I no longer 
  had an email address.
