Toaster design 

The repairable flatpack toaster project is about designing a toaster that can be assembled and repaired by users.

It took the t-shirts I ordered four full days to get from Easthampton, MA to Newark, NJ. This is a three hour drive.

They still have to cross the ocean, and I imagine they will be doing so with DHL's finest canoe.

Some reflections from a conversation outside this conference which really apply here too -- tech will not save us. Creating a better world requires the active engagement of the humans beings in it. There's no getting around that.

... I'm looking at you, techbros.
