Welcome to the Free Geek Vancouver Volunteer Blog! This is a volunteer-run (i.e. unofficial) blog describing the daily experience at Free Geek Vancouver and the week-to-week projects and changes that are going on there.
My name is Alec Smecher and I've been volunteering with Free Geek Vancouver for several years. If you've been there on a Thursday, you've probably met me, either at the build bench, or network device testing, or in various other corners of the building. I served on the Free Geek Vancouver Board of Directors from 2009 to 2010.
My goal with this blog is to extend the social experience at Free Geek Vancouver beyond the walls of the building and the regular hours that we spend there. For example, I typically volunteer on Thursdays and would love the chance to interact with the weekend warriors. I hope to capture some interesting projects here and encourage people to participate. Finally, I hope to make a place for volunteers to receive some kudos for the work they do improving Free Geek Vancouver and generally helping to keep the lights on.
Comments and contributions are welcome. This is a work in progress and will take shape over the coming weeks.
Volunteer, Free Geek Vancouver
