“The craftsman is proud of what he has made, and cherishes it, while the consumer discards things that are perfectly serviceable in his restless pursuit of the new”
Richard Sennett, The Culture of the new Capitalism
Technology Will Save Us exists to educate and enable people to make and experiment creatively with technology.
Devices, gadgets and computers are a fundamental part of our everyday lives. Yet most people know so little about what these things are made of; let alone how to fix them or create new ways to use them. However, an exciting shift is emerging in society, a shift where people are finding new and inventive ways to re-skill.
This business is part of that shift.
Whether it be learning how to sew, garden, build furniture or bake bread – the desire to produce, invent, make and fix things is re-emerging in London. There are also skills we have never actually learnt about, which are key to understanding many of the modern technologies we take for granted.
We see an opportunity to ‘pre–skill’ people around these modern technologies and see what new services and products we can create together.
This is all part of a bigger belief that we can all live more sustainable and more conscious lives. By understanding what goes into the things we use daily, rather than simply throwing away what we no longer have use for, we will have the new-found potential to fix, re-use and re-purpose
We believe technology can play a much more creative role in people’s lives. Technology Will Save Us.
