Our own Wiki site contains a wealth of information on all things Free Geek Vancouver. We use it to document the inner workings of Free Geek, and make it publicly accessible to anyone who wants to get involved!


Free Geek Vancouver runs a real-time group chat salon, primarily for socializing and relaxing. Volunteers, staff and enthusiasts from all over the galaxy have been known to hang out in our chat room. It may seem quiet in there at times: people often have it running in the background while they do other things like surfing the internet or cooking dinner. Be patient!

If you have your own IRC client, you can find us on: #freegeek-van
