Bridging the Global Digital Divide with Recycled Computers
For the last four years the World Computer Exchange has been building an organization to place used computers in schools in under-developed countries. The approach of the Exchange both aids in the education of youth in developing countries while extending the useful life of discarded PC’s that would otherwise be added to landfills. Richard Gingras, a Silicon Valley veteran and active WCE board member, will discuss the efforts and challenges faced by the Exchange in addressing this complex but beneficial mission.
Our work is centered around a series of Focus Areas that we believe are the future of science and technology.
We’re continually developing new technologies, many of which are available for Commercialization.
PARC scientists and staffers are active members and contributors to the science and technology communities.
