London – At LS:N Global’s Just Nots network evening at our headquarters last month, editor James Wallman interviewed Richard Chinn, a team expert at London-based technology haberdashery Technology Will Save Us.
TWSU was set up to encourage people to repair rather than throw away their technological devices. Calling itself a haberdashery for technology, it sells kits and components for fixing, hacking and making devices from a newly launched space in record store Rough Trade East in east London. It also runs educational workshops on how to fix, hack and build your own technology in pop-up spaces at design festivals and other technology events.
Chinn spoke about the emergence of a new repair-it-yourself culture and how it relates to the Just Nots report. ‘We’re really excited about the possibilities, when people know how to make things, what kind of stuff they might make,’ he said.
