Heh - you beat me to it! Doesn't need to be exclusively electronics, of course. But small and light would be good, for shipping purposes.

Sure, but I'd like it to be a bit more inclusive. Throw in some gears, maybe a couple of old watches, some lenses, a diffraction grating, etc. Heck, add some knex pieces while we're at it! :-D

I saw this on Evil Mad Scientist Laboratories, sounds like a great idea.

I'll take the box! Gladly! Then I'll pass it on! I love boxes of electronics junk! I can contribute junk, and I would donate some of my own!

I am still pondering the purpose, unless it is to collect (acquire) names and addresses ?

>I am still pondering the purpose Then you obviously aren't a good choice for someone to send the box to.

thats not what you meant was it ? well you could have it so when you get the box you have to post a forum topic with pictures of what you took out and what you put in. (or we could make it so only people who have been hear a certain time could receive the package)

Seems inefficient to me. We ought to be able to implement a VIRTUAL BOX OF JUNK that would involve only shipping around the pieces people were interested in trading.

that would defeat the whole "I cant wait to see whats inside" fun :) but other than that it would be cool too.
