The Restart Project’s podcast features the work of Monique Szpak, Restart’s Community Coordinator for Data, in wrangling and compiling Open Repair Alliance data. If you are interested in this work, we highly recommend it.
Monique takes us on a tour of the data collected at community repair events across the world by The Open Repair Alliance. Through an open data standard, Monique has helped to unify and compare the Alliance’s nearly 30,000 repair attempts. She shares some of the most poetic and amusing entries in the database.
Monique waxes philosophical with Dave about the meaning and ultimately the significance of this data. She also outlines some of the work ahead.
