    After I read this article, I was in shock.

    I had never thought about the millions of discarded computers the western world generates each year-- and where it goes/what happens to it.

    The article above has an enormous amount of info in it.

    For example: The EPA says it costs TEN TIMES as much to recycle the e-waste here vs shipping it overseas.

    Seems like a HUGE opportunity to me.

    Figure out how to properly recycle e-waste (old computers, etc) in a GREEN way, and you have a enormous winner here.

    It's a classic win-win-win scenario:

    -Millions of old computers
    -Lots of precious metals
    -Also old working computers useful to the developing world
    -terrible toxic waste, someone needs to come up with a green answer

    *******

    I'm thinking you'd even be eligible for some rather sizable govt and corporate grants. :)
