All those cool slick gadgets, the ones that become obsolete the moment we hear about them, you know the ones we all want to show off, the ones we play with and continously replace, you know the ones! Those ubiquitous technologies are like all material things - not benign. Particularly the chemicals, the plastics and the production environment at the manufacturing plant.
Check out the Greenpeace Guide to Green Electronics for more information.
Oh oh! Cool might not be cool afterall - look where Apple is on the scheme!
Do you know how hard it was for me to find a home for my broken OLYMPUS camera that died one dark and stormy night at a lurkium suburban soccer field? I finally found a place that would fix em, and when they could’nt, they promised to reuse the parts for something or other! My friend Pedro thought it would be fun to get all those discarded little mini LCD screens, sew them together into an outfit and then have all sorts of pictures running through them! Anyone need an OLYMPUS memory card?
