The Fixing of Things

When did you last pull something apart and fix it? This talk breaks open the concept of repair and why has it become so difficult? It provides new thinking. How can we take back control of our own resources? How can we break our dependence on manufacturers who create product with limited life spans? Some say ‘buy or die’. We shout ‘fix or die’.
