Where is all the ePaper?
I went to sleep with my Paperwhite in my hand. I had the strangest experience.
I dreamt of Halloween – tricks. treats, pranks, costumes and parties. This is strange because I haven’t dressed up for Halloween since high school. I do like the candy, however.
Yum, candy! Image: Google
I woke up – it was Halloween Day. Everything seemed the same as the day before. One thing was off – couldn’t find the Paperwhite. I looked a little, figured it was tangled in my comforter. Ok, you caught me – I don’t make my bed ever day!

I start my day. It was unusual because I needed to make some stops before I went to the office. First stop was an electronic big box store. Something was off. I realized that the shelf labels were paper. I know they had ePaper electronic shelf labels the last time I was there. Odd.
I went to get some breakfast at a chain diner. The menu boards were so bright. LCD? But last week they were ePaper.

I went into the office – I tried, anyway. E Ink wasn’t there! Some random office building was in its place.

I drove past a bus stop – no kiosks with scheduling information. Ok, something is up.
Starting to put the pieces together. I am in a world without ePaper! How could this be??
Totally freaked out, I headed home. Tried to get some work done but I was totally distracted. So, I took a nap.
It was a pretty long nap. I woke up the next morning – there was my Paperwhite! Retraced my steps from the day before – menus, electronic shelf tags, bus kiosks. What a relief!
I don’t want to live in a world without ePaper!
