Inspired by Mister Jalopy’s/MAKE’s Maker’s Bill of Rights and Platform 21’s Repair Manifesto, the folks at iFixit have created this lovely repair manifesto and poster. They’re on a mission to get this thing up in hackerspaces, workshops, bulletin boards, and garages the world over. They’ve even printed 1500 copies of the poster that they’re giving away, in exchange for a Tweet or FB mention (and you have to register on iFixit). You can also download and print your own. They’ll also be including a free poster in the next 5,000 iFixIt parts orders.
