The Self-Repair Manifesto

by Patrick James

I also love the sentiment that "repair transforms consumers into contributors," and that the project puts a premium on engaging with the things we own.

Boing Boing notes that "iFixit has a vested interest in the campaign worth noting: the company sells parts and upgrades, mostly for Apple equipment." But that doesn't mean the message is any less awesome. Repair (and reuse) is always better than recycling. 

It does seem rather similar to Platform 21's Repair Manifesto, no?
