What did we fix? Fun with open repair data on Open Data Day 2020

This year’s Open Data Day is coming up - Saturday 7th March.

We’ll be bringing open repair data to the global event again this year, with a new online activity to play.

It'll get you thinking about repair, repair data, and the types of things we fix. Get engaged with repair data and the right to repair!

We're running an online event from 1pm - 4pm GMT on the day. You can join from anywhere in the world and drop in at any time.

Please sign up for a ticket to help give us an idea of numbers.

Last year for open data day we started our dive into fault categorisation, culminating in FaultCat. For this year’s event we’re working on a new online activity (codename: MiscCat).

We’ll be using it to check through the devices that have been categorised as ‘Misc’ in the Fixometer - we think a lot of them can be categorised as something else. We’ll be investigating new electronic/electrical categories, and we’ll also be working with the categories for non-powered devices we’re currently adding in to the Fixometer.

You can find more details on the event here.

Hope you can make it!
