Alternative electronic recycling, 2003

Computer scientists have discovered a way to recycle previously used computer cycles and previously generated data. The trick is first to compress newly written programs using an approach similar to Kolomogorov Complexity analysis, and then map the results into callable elements of old programs that can directly give the desired results in return. Research is underway that would even enable the used cycles of old programs written in archaic languages such as COBOL and FORTRAN to be recycled in this way.
