The Geekosystem is a project by Julian Priest, David Merritt, and Adam Hyde. We have all been and are sometimes artists working with communities, technology, and anything else we find interesting. The Geekosystem itself is a system of geekery that takes places in art galleries and art spaces and invites local communities of geeks and non-geeks alike to come together and explore old technologies, discuss gadgetry, read old computer books, contemplate the ethics and ideologies of planned obsolescence, find new uses for hardware, make things, show others how to make things, and shred proprietary software manuals (and turn them into soil).

“The USDA has a strict cap on the amount of chlorine that can be used in these chiller baths [used to wash freshly killed chickens]: no more than 50 parts per million, or 50 ounces for every 7,800 gallons of water. As a point of comparison, the federal limit on chlorine used in drinking water is 4 ppm, and swimming pools usually contain 1 to 3 ppm. (That distinctive pool smell usually attributed to chlorine is actually produced by the combination of chlorine and perspiration, body oils, and urine.)”—http://www.slate.com/id/2196197/
