There are a lot of senior citizens who have never used computers and have no idea how they can enrich their lives when they are less mobile and family are far away. Furthermore most computers turn into toxic e-waste when tossed in the dump. An innovative project in Maine links seniors with companies and individuals with old computers, bringing seniors into the information age. As founder Rick Bonneau said: "Computers could help with loneliness. Seniors could converse with family members out of the area, chat with relatives out of state. They could check the weather or play solitaire or (other) games. It could pass the time away." ::Kennebec Journal
