Jane from Sugru sez, "We've been working on The Fixer's Manifesto. for ages, and we're pumped about it!"
Fixing is the unsung hero of creativity. And it really shouldn't be. It's the most common, humble and beautiful form of creativity there is. Let's wear that belief proudly. Let's notice and celebrate these little everyday triumphs, and help others see their value whenever we can. We made this to fuel the conversation about why a culture of fixing is so important.

But fixing is something people feel strongly about, so we're pretty sure you won't agree with all of it, and you'll want to fix it. So this is version 1. There are plain text (Markdown), EPS, and PDF copies on GitHub, where you can contribute improvements, fork the manifesto, or make stuff with it. If you're not into Github, you can download a PDF for free, and we made beautiful letterpress prints. Each one ships with a pink pen for editing.
