Computer Chip Manufacturing And Water

a: Creating a computer chip ~
b: building a skyscraper one floor at a time

What: "Creating a computer chip -- be it for a laptop, camera, or microwave -- is like building a skyscraper one floor at a time"....This is a discussion about why microchips use a lot of water and how it affects local water consumption in places where there may not be enough water. I think this is why Intel has manufacturing plants in Oregon, next to the Columbia river.

METAMIA is a free database of analogy and metaphor. Anyone can contribute or search. The subject matter can be anything. Science is popular, but poetry is encouraged. The goal is to integrate our fluid muses with the stark literalism of a relational database. Metamia is like a girdle for your muses, a cognitive girdle.
