Reduce, Recycle, Reuse Part II

When our office started upgrading from our 8100 Macs to G3's, we were left with piles of defunct floppy discs. Being of the "waste not, want not" mindset, we began shucking the discs and using the innards to create the lovely, swaying floppy disc curtain that is the pride of our cubicle area.

The architecture folks tried to one up us by making the "Wall of CD's". Not to be outdone, we gathered up our supply of discarded Tony Stone and AOL discs and began the "Pillar of CD's". The Pillar is superior in so many ways. We used velcro dots, so there are no tacky thumbtacks like the Wall employs. The discs appear to be magically adhered to the pillar. Not to mention much more condusive to our impending relocation next year. Our discs are more asthetically pleasing than the Wall. The Pillar sparkles and glints like a huge disco ball. And we aren't even done.

Discarded technology. The corporate art of the future.
