There are so many things I want to do, and I’m never going to have the time to to do them. One idea I had was, tied into my Steam Geek blog, to find old appliances, like the gorgeous coffee grinder my sister gave me, refurbish them and sell them on. I thought of it as a garden shed business, do a few hours a week and sell them at markets. Sadly it remains a dream and likely will stay that way.
I was going to repair stuff built before planned obsolescence, keeping it out of landfill and removing the need for newer replacements. Matt Bremner started iRepair.ca to fix busted iPods and keep the fashion accessories from being thrown away.
