It should be mentioned that Free Geek also works with volunteers with disabilities. My younger brother, who has some pretty severe learning disabilities but absolutely loves computers, spent his afternoons working there during his senior year of high school and the majority of his summer as well. Going to pick him up from there I was consistently amazed by how kind, warm, patient and understanding the staff and volunteers were. A really amazing, brilliant organization.

What a cool video! And the fact that you did it on the plane is even more amazing!

Thanks for sharing what you learned at Free Geek. I'd support a franchise in Philadelphia, too. :-)

The version of the Free Geek video on You Tube is the short one. If you'd like to see the full version (12 min), look here: http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=3343196262291457240&hl=en

The Free Geek wiki has a page on the other Free Geeks out there and what it takes to earn the right to use the name. It takes a lot of hard work and some luck, but one of our goals is to give others the tools to replicate our success.

I'm glad you enjoyed your time at FG and I think it's great you're taking the time to share your experiences. Come back any time!
