From Free Geek Seattle
Jump to: navigation, search
Free Geek Seattle is a growing non-profit organization modeled after the original Free Geek of Portland, Oregon. Our focus is free and open source software advocacy, technology education, and sustainable computing.


What We Do

  • Refurbish donated computer hardware, and install free open source software for distribution to the community.
  • Provide education about basic PC hardware, the Linux operating system, and any other technologies that we're working on or have expertise in.
  • Recycle anything we can't fix or use in an environmentally-responsible manner.
