Next Meeting – Th, Oct 1, noon

We’ll meet again on Thursday in the Chemistry student lounge to share lunch and ideas.

I just read an interesting article about electronics waste being shipped to China and poisoning the inhabitants. See “Confronting a Toxic Blowback from the Electronics Trade” (Science, 28 August 2009, p. 1055). This follows up on a story that is covered in the book, “High Tech Trash” (the Reed library owns a copy, but I have borrowed it – come see me if you want to read it – AJS). While googling “high tech trash”, I also came across a recent article in National Geographic (Jan 2008).

What have you been reading lately?
