I just spent half an hour of an April morning on a 'digital declutter' project to scrap the contents of an old folder Daughter-Two brought home at the end of the last school year. Here in New Zealand, every 11 and 12 year old has had to take "tech" classes, sometimes at their own school or sometimes - as in Daughter-Two's case - they are bused to a tech centre that takes the children from a number of surrounding schools.

My Dad was a keen photographer and we loved to see the photos he took. But his format of choice was the slide, or colour transparency. Which meant that, instead of getting packets of photos to pore over, we had to wait until the special evenings when he would pin a white sheet up and pull out the slide projector and the boxes of slides. In between, we could use the little 'pre-viewer' designed to allow you to check out a photo before you projected it onto the sheet. But, trut
