Free bicycles. Both have been outside for a while and will need a serious overhaul to be usable again.

Free Xbox. Not an Xbox 360 or an Xbox One, an original Xbox, released 2001. Modded, comes with two controllers and a big pile of games.

If you see anything here that might be useful to you, it's yours, otherwise it's all going to recycling! Happy to give more info on anything that's not clear from the photos. Cheers!

Is there anything to be done with boxes of obsolete tech besides throwing them away?

I have tons of stuff like this and it’s very hard to shake the feeling that surely it must be useful for something. Those Palm Pilots were expensive and very useful bits of kit when we got them, for example. Is it really all good for nothing except taking to the recycling for rendering to raw materials?

Note that I certainly don’t want to use it for anything myself, and I don’t really want to make more than a minimal effort here. While I’m just having a hard time letting go of the idea that there’s someone, somewhere, who would actually be glad of having some of it, I’m not really prepared to put a lot of work into finding them. Any ideas?

Primary schools sometimes like these kinds of things, we used to let the kids play with/take apart this kind of stuff.

Free monitor. So old it only has VGA, but at least it's flatscreen. Needs a 12v supply. Good for some sort of status display, photo frame or similar.

Free Wii!

Nintendo Wii, sensor bar, two controllers, at least one nunchuck (can't be bothered to unseal the box I put it in, sorry :) ) at least one WiiMotion Plus, and a bunch of games.

Free to the first person who can take it off our hands :) Cheers!

Brilliant, looking forward to seeing you then! I'm afraid we won't be able to be very social though, we're having a crazy time of it right now!

Giving away these six computer husks. Some of them have processors, memory, and graphics cards. Some of the fans or processor fans are ultra-quiet. Some of them are only a few years old and not too shabby. None of them have hard drives :) Must all go at once.

Nikola Tesla, 1926:

"From the inception of the wireless system," he says, "I saw that this new art of applied electricity would be of greater benefit to the human race than any other scientific discovery, for it virtually eliminates distance.  The majority of the ills from which humanity suffers are due to the immense extent of the terrestrial globe and the inability of individuals and nations to come into close contact.

"Wireless will achieve the closer contact through transmission of intelligence, transport of our bodies and materials and conveyance of energy. 

"When wireless is perfectly applied the whole earth will be converted into a huge brain, which in fact it is, all things being particles of a real and rhythmic whole.  We shall be able to communicate with one another instantly, irrespective of distance.  Not only this, but through television and telephony we shall see and hear one another as perfectly as though we were face to face, despite intervening distances of thousands of miles; and the instruments through which we shall be able to do his will be amazingly simple compared with our present telephone.  A man will be able to carry one in his vest pocket.

"We shall be able to witness and hear events--the inauguration of a President, the playing of a world series game, the havoc of an earthquake or the terror of a battle--just as though we were present."
WHEN WOMAN IS BOSS, an interview with Nikola Tesla by John B. Kennedy.

My review of Eliezer Yudkowsky's Rationality: From AI to Zombies. Surprisingly enough, I liked it.

Stuart Armstrong invented the term "A lump of cadmium" for a level of precaution woefully inadequate to the risk at hand. Based on the "safety precautions" in the German nuclear program in WWII. http://aleph.se/andart2/risk/a-lump-of-cadmium/
