In 250 words or more, answer the following questions:
1. What is e-waste? What is so dangerous about e-waste? Many well-meaning individuals thought that recycling was the answer to the e-waste problem. But why hasn’t e-waste recycling yielded the results hoped for?
2. What are network effects? Think about the kinds of technology products that you own, or websites you use, that are subject to network effects. What sorts of exchange do these products leverage (e.g., information, money, software, or other media)? Give several concrete examples and explain them as clearly as you can in your own words.
3. Find an article online that discusses the problem of e-waste, preferably one that also proposed a solution. In your own words summarize and critique the article. Do you think it is a viable solution? Why or why not? Be sure to include the url to your article.
