Giant head made of computer parts at the ACCRC

Here's a 20-second video of a 9-foot tall head (skull?) made out of computer parts. It can be found at the Alameda County Computer Resource Center, a non-profit that accepts electronic junk and either refurbishes it, or, like yesterday (when the Makers were there), lets people pick through it.

This is james from accrc. I am having e-mail issues at the moment but I have something coming in that you may find useful so here it is. I have approx 15000' of military grader fiber coming in over the next couple of days.

Im talking many crates. The description given to me is "half a large semi load".

James: Wow! Unbelievable. I'd love to come over and pick some up when it arrives. Please keep me posted, either here or at katiegreene at mac dot com. You are truly amazing.
