On The Mean Streets Of Frankford You Might Overhear Discussions On the Geopolitical Implications Of Corporate E-Waste

wink on computers

Frankford local Chris Wink showed up on Fox 29’s 10 PM broadcast last night discussing a piece he did for his startup Technically Philly about how old computers from the School District of Philadelphia ended up in trash heaps in Africa instead of being properlly disposed.  It has the makings of a scandal.  But not only is it impressive that this young freelance journalist fresh out of Temple finds himself offering incite and context on an issue that is sure to be a hot topic in the future, but he’s discussing on a corner at Penn and Overington.  Way to go Chris.
