Even though I wasn’t here the first week, my neighborhood is perfect for finding lots of tossed out electronics. In fact, we’ve gotten a lot of stuff off the streets immediately around my apartment. Unfortunately, though, the few electronic items we’ve tried have all been broken, but I think that’s partially a matter of just bad luck.
Since I came into this class a bit late, though, I think I missed a round or two of garbage pick-up and I didn’t find as much good stuff as I normally would. I did come across a decent printer and a fan, though.
I forgot to take a picture of the fan before I disassembled it, but here’s the printer:
Hopefully after this class I’ll be able to really figure out how to use all the great stuff that I see each week on the streets!
