Fixperts: The power of practical design

I was just introduced to the wonderful concept of Fixperts - a new project by British designers Daniel Charney and James Carrigan that celebrates the often overlooked but powerful value of handy people fixing things, and helping others in the process. The project is looking to become a fully-fledged collaborative social site where through the power of the web, problems (broken lights, annoying squeaks, just about anything potentially) can be connected with practical minded technologists, designers and tinkerers. These videos show the power of such a simple concept to improve lives, and the obvious applicability to older adults and people with disabilities.
