Context

LaboratoryB has prioritized applying member and community resources to efforts to enrich the community. One effort that has arisen out of this goal has been our unofficial hardware redistribution and repair program. Beginning in late 2019, LaboratoryB has been able to provide a trickle of refurbished computers back to the community.

The distribution process has taken different forms over time:

  • Laboratory B Device Nights
  • direct communication with mutual aid programs like Food Not Bombs
  • community outreach for requests

Tracking requests and hardware

As of September 2020, data about requests and existing hardware were being tracked in on this page:
