Zero Dollar Laptop Workshops Reusing old, unused laptops with Free, Open Source Software

Welcome to the The Zero Dollar Laptop Project blog

The Zero Dollar Laptop is a recycled computer, running Free Open Source Software (FOSS) that is fast and effective- now and long into the future.

In January 2010 we kick off the Zero Dollar Laptop Project in London.
Working with clients of St Mungo’s charity for homeless people we will be recycling hardware, breaking Windows and installing Free and Open Source Software. We will build media laptops to create music, graphics and video for distribution over the Internet. Participants will leave the project with street-smart technical knowledge and a wireless enabled media laptop, classier than any shiny power-book.

From this blog you will be able to access information and resources about what we are learning in the workshops as well as seeing and commenting on any images, sounds and videos that participants choose to share.

The Zero Dollar Laptop project is a programme of public debates, exhibitions and workshops about art, technology and environment inspired by the Zero Dollar Laptop Manifesto. Developed in partnership with Access Space and St Mungo’s charity for the homeless as part of Furtherfield.org’s Media Art Ecologies programme.
