Love the sliding panel documenting the history of planned obsolescence. This is one of my favorite sites. I love the breathable layout and it keeps me very informed on design that bridges humanity, technology, and our very important ecosystem.

Whether I love it or not, repair and troubleshooting have systematically followed me throughout my life. I can’t even tell you how many vacuums I have repaired. The “Art of Motorcycle Maintenance” by Robert M. Pirsig talks about two types of people. The first are romanticists, those focused on being “in the moment” and not on rational analysis. Then there are those who seek to know the details, the classicists. They understand the inner workings, and master the mechanics. Both mindsets and approaches are of necessity in this cycle of life.
