Help Jared Get His Laptop Repaired for His Birthday

July 13th, 2009 by pfischer

In the grand tradition of the Internet, I’ve started up a fund to right a wrong. Jared Axelrod is one of the most creative people I’ve ever met. He is simply awesome. About a year ago he purchased my old Apple G4 Powerbook from me. I was really excited at the prospect of him being able to create new and wonderful things to share while on the road.

Unfortunately the laptop screen got broken in an accident a short time later and the machine, while still operational, is anchored to his desktop by a large and clunky monitor. No longer can he create on the go as the universe intended.

So I implore you, please help us get Jared’s laptop fixed. I found a company in California that will repair it for $250. I expect he’ll have to spend between $30 and $50 boxing it up to travel safely as well as for postage and insurance. So I’ve created the ChipIn.com fund for a total of $300 (less PayPal fees). [NOTE: I couldn’t figure out how to have Chipin.com show our donation, so I lowered the original amount to reflect our gift.]

Anything you can spare would be a great help. Please consider give a few bucks to help him get his mobile mojo back in gear. Every $5 or $10 you can spare will get him closer to creating more wonderful things without being anchored to a monitor.

ADD Cast 064 – Jedi School Dropout

In each community there is a coming of age ritual that marks the change between childhood and adulthood. In our wonderful podcasting tribe, two youngsters turned 14 and created their own podcasts to mark thisĀ momentousĀ event. The first of these is a radio play based in the Star Wars universe written and produced by Spinderfly, a.k.a. Lava Spout.

Consider, if you will, what would happen if you had an obnoxiously perky Sith in training.
