I am Julien Cooper. Let's talk electronics. I advocate strongly in the sharing of existing resources such as electronic devices, for both personal and citizen journalistic uses. I call it 'Useful recycling we can use again' as in goods not broken down and then re-manufactured. I also offer free of charge the simple repairs and returns of electronics and free collections of electronics to re-purpose for new users. I hope one day we will have a fully established technical repair shop available to create an inner-city repair and exchange shop which the public can use as a makerspace or to receive or offer services in, which can include designing new inventions with or without peer help and having a public trade-in or exchange depot.
