Storage Visions 2014 - As someone who personally helps run a youth outreach program, I know the value that foundations dedicated to helping under-resourced youth have the tools needed to learn the valuable STEM skills our school system simply overlooks. The Outlook Foundation refurbishes, re-purposes, and then donates used computers to Youth Outreach programs across the US, as well as providing used PCs to military families so deployment communication is as easy and efficient as possible.
This was my last interview of the show and while not directly related to digital storage, I feel that this was a story that needed to get out. The importance of organizations like this is unmeasurable, as getting the tools into under-resourced youth hands will allow outreach programs to go that extra mile in STEM education that public schools just have no time or funds to teach.
