Free Geek Chicago, 24 hours = Community

The great folks at Free Geek Chicago have put out a very nice video about the work they do and the role they play in the community technology movement in Chicago. Beyond the frames of Digital Divide and Digital Excellence, they see this as a matter of survival in the modern economy.

If you know anyone that needs a computer — make them aware that 24 hours of service at FGC will earn them their own refurbished machine, give them a new insight into the life-cycle of technology and should forge some great new friendships.

David Eads (featured in the video), one of the founders of FGC presented the CDAA’s Digital Excellence Advocate Award to Carl Davidson on Friday Oct. 29, at DEXCON2010. FGC is established at the location of Carl’s former TechTrain program.
