Sorry again for the lack of updates. There have again been several important personal things to deal with which took their time and did not leave enough spare time for something else. Among these were (and still are) things like helping my brother and his girlfriend moving to their new home or trying to organize and compare offerings for a thermal energy storage upgrade of the heating system in my home.
But for me personally most important was the unexpected gain of popularity and need for communication related to the RepairCafé. This has been caused by a full-page newspaper article that was published a few weeks after our second RepairCafé. After that article there have been numerous contact requests and inquiries. Apart from simply explaining details of the RepairCafé this also involves networking and bringing people in touch with each other for cooperative intermediate repairs. Furthermore we're working on enhancing our online presence and planning future events.
We decided for now on an RepairCafé event every other month, with Nov. 23rd being our next date. Additionally we're planning a coop-event with the environmental department of Graz the day before. As this coop-event will take place at a shopping center it will be a large public appearance and there are numerous things to prepare for that. One of the things is to organize some helpers which can be present there and cover the whole day as well as finishing up our homepage and preparing some material to show at the event.
Bear with me, I'm trying to come up with more postings but time is currently a rare gem again.
