Kyle and company at iFixit.com have announced iFixit.org, a huge project that has blown me away:

“We have been traveling to developing countries in Asia and Africa, visiting e-waste scrapyards and small repair shops, meeting ‘fixers’ who breathe new life into gadgets that the western world has tossed away, and photographing the journey. Part travelogue, part investigative reporting, part soapbox, iFixit.org promises only one thing: a clear-eyed, thoughtful look at global repair culture.”

What a brilliant, stunning, inspiring project. Congratulations and best wishes to all involved. I’m very excited to watch this grow. I met Kyle at Macworld Expo a couple of years ago and walked away thinking he’s a real stand-up guy. This confirms it.
