Hi, well done to @RestartProject for organizing a fantastic #FixFest2020; the last session on how Fixometer data is collected and used was a brilliant way to close the event!
I am sure I am not alone in being able to say that I love the Fixometer. As a researcher, and a bit of a geek, I am wondering if now might be a good time to update the spreadsheet that gives us those motivating statistics on the weight of electronics saved from landfill and carbon footprint estimates on the restarters.net homepage? A lot of devices in it are relatively old in technological terms (e.g. the most recent phone in the spreadsheet was released in 2014), and it would be interesting to see if changes in design/types of materials used may have changed this footprint.
In addition, it might even be able to go beyond carbon footprints and add some information on the reduction/disposal of minerals/materials embedded in the devices repaired using this dataset and others like it (maybe even data generated in the community!).
If anyone at @RestartProject or in the community are interested it would be great to work together/organize an online event to amass as much data for everyone to use and fine tune those stats.
