I can relate to what this article means by today’s designers being “computer minded.” I can relate because my generation is the one he is referring to. If you think about it, everything these days is computer based (automotive, electronic, manufacturing, etc.). One can hardly use any product now without a computer being involved somehow. Even businesses do less on a piece of paper than they do on a computer. Due to this obsession with computers and computer systems controlling other products, I believe that it greatly contributes to the issues with e-waste. It all starts with the designer.
