What's with all these Free Geeks, anyway?

They may or may not be using the name FREE GEEK, but there are people out there who are working on projects much like ours.

When we hear from someone who wants to start a freegeek or join a similar group in their area, we refer them to the startup email list [1], where they can search the archives for mention of their location or sign up and ask if there are lurkers local to them.

We came up with the Free Geek Principles in order to guide those who might want to use our name; sort of a copyright kinda thing, a distillation of what's most important to us about what we do.

Those using our name:

Other projects we work with:

Projects we've crossed paths with:

  • Longrun Project (Ashland, Wisconsin [[9]])
  • Metareciclagem (Brazil http://metareciclagem.org)
  • ReLectronics (Bellingham, Washington [[10]])
  • Recycle Hawaii / Community Technology Center of Hawaii (Hilo, Hawaii [[11]])
  • Computer Bank (Australia, Earth) [12]
  • Greenbriar Collective (Norman, OK) [13]
  • Interconnection.org (Seattle, WA) [14]

(very incomplete list!) (yeah! so when you are checking me out dont forget to update me!)
