Free Geek Chicago Saving Us from Our CPUs

As technologies continue to get better and faster, computers seem outdated as you take them out of the store.  Who hasn’t opened a drawer to find old cables, mouse pads and keyboards or an antiquated CPU collecting dust in the corner of a closet or office?

Free Geek Chicago tries to find new homes for those outdated discarded technologies once a group of volunteers pick apart and rebuild them from a workshop full of salvaged parts.

WCRX-FM’s Shane Reynolds went out to the offices and training space of Free Geek Chicago where weekends are filled with staff and volunteers taking in donations and making this more valuable.
