I have to disagree with both the idea (that paper is the best) and that David says so. I know he says you can do GTD on paper and it's often a good place to go if you are stuck on some point but I don't think anywhere he says paper is the most functional, best or fastest.

Blindly saying one is the best isn't really helpful when it may not be best for a particular person.
