Old Faithful now boasts a porous, clean flexible walkway made mostly of recycled Michelin tires. The pavement surface, known as Flexi-Pave and manufactured by the company K.B. Industries (KBI), is gentler to the environment than asphalt because the permeable composite material allows for better erosion control and preservation of the natural patterns of groundwater flow. In addition, the walkway surface is extremely durable and tolerant of heat and cold, and does not leach any oil into the surrounding environment.

Pero ¿ha pensado alguna vez en todos los objetos físicos y manuables que no existirían hoy si no fuese por las computadoras? Además de que la ingeniería y la manufactura serían sin duda más lentas y difíciles, habría menos cosas si aun estuviésemos usando tarjetas indizadas para mantener un registro de las mismas.
