Joel’s back. Yay!
Ideally, we can create an electronics industry that wastes less to create better things. It’s not such a daunting goal. If our industry weren’t capable of progress, we wouldn’t have the good things we have today, even if we’re a long way from perfection. Perhaps my optimism is irrational, but I hope it’s the last vice I give up. If the electronics industry only exists to trade our time, peace, and money for quickly-cooling baubles, I’m not the only only one who should be filled with self-loathing.
