Happy Birthday to the CD?

Man with CD

Sony released the first Compact Disk (CD) on October 1, 1982.  Do you remember?  Being "random access" digital, there was no more need to rewind or fast forward music cassette tapes.  The CD was an incredible innovation, but where are they now?

Over One Trillion Discs!

This is enough to circle the earth 30 times.  Now that we're living in the cloud, the CD is on the wrong side of history.  Most are going to landfills or incineration which creates a massive stream of toxic waste and harmful pollutants.
