29 April, 2010
Just a quickie to remind y'all that GeekFest is on at The Shelter in Al Quoz tonight, starting at 7.30pm. There are the usual quartet of unusual GeekTalks (details of the talks here), GameFest appears to have taken on a life of its own (the chance to frag each other in networked games around a table) and there are various arty happenings taking place too.
One unusual aspect of tonight's event is that we're asking everyone to bring any old techno-trash as we've arranged with recycling company EnviroServe to have it all recycled - either refurbished and given to a deserving cause or rendered down and made safe and/or re-usable. So if you've got any old PCs, disks, screens, cable, faxes, printers, modems, networking kit, radios, mobiles, desktop phones, VCRs or TVs or any other electronic junk you don't want, bring it down to The Shelter. We're aiming to beat DICs collection drive, which ended up collecting 1,000 bits of techno-jetsam.
GeekFest Dubai 4.0, When Geeks Go Green, will take place on tonight, the 29th April 2010, at The Shelter in Al Quoz (this is the link to the Google map). You can do the Facebook thing or follow @GeekFestDubai on Twitter.
