I've been fixing things for a while now. I've got some background here, and more over at

I started iFixit, the free repair manual. I think technology will make life on Earth dramatically better if we take the care to do it right. To that end, I write regularly on technology issues. I also end up in the media a fair amount.

My writing:

I speak frequently on design for disassembly, technical writing, repair, service documentation, and the environmental impact of electronics at forums like MacWorld, DesignCon, and eScrap.

My writing has been published in The Atlantic, Harvard Business Review, Wired, The Wall Street Journal, TreeHugger, and elsewhere.
