Video about Free Geek Twin Cities

Free Geek would like to thank a Minneapolis based “This Does Not Compute” Youtube channel for creating a great video about Free Geek history and operations. The video is available at:

The channel is a favorite of a number of Free Geek staff as it covers in depth topics that would be interesting to people who enjoy technology.
