who's to blame? ;-)

sorry if this topic looks like pure spam.

i'm pretty nervous right now.

it's 04:50 and at 06:00 the guys from the tv station will make a little "home story" about me and the things i do with all kind of technical stuff (as part of a live show in 3 weeks)

arrgh - tempus fugit - i'm extremely nervous

i think i should prepare a few things for them.....maybe i'll find some crappy stuff......

Answered! View the answer I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

it was very funny - almost 4 hours for ~5 minutes airtime.

the airdate is sept. 27 - the users from central europe can watch it on br alpha - the show is called on3 - südwild.

the 5 minute clip is only some kind of home story and the rest of the show will be live on air.

i don't know if non german surfers can see the video content on http://on3.de - the show will be online on sept. 28 as a stream (and download)

by

Markus, that is excellent. Now you are a movie star too.....how cool is that ;-) bookmarked the site already. Wird ja mal ganz interessant sein....

by

movie star?? - lol.

it's some kind of funny (and weird) - many teens and twens are trying to get their faces on the screen (mostly with some kind of "music") - they have not the slightest interest in technical stuff at all,

and now - some old bag like me is going to tell them - in their preferred "world" (aka TV) - that the should care more about their technical stuff, repair it and in a simple way - save the environment (and their money).

i think that the live show will be funny too, the guys from the Bayerischer Rundfunk (Bavarian Broadcasting) (on3 is the youth program of the BR) are great - i had no "stage fright" at all, we laughed a lot and that way it was very easy to do the job ;-)

so getting back to the "movie star" thing - h3ll no - i have no time for that stuff.

i have way much to do without the TV thing ;-)

by

so that means no autographs to sell on ebay? ah well. I'll be def watching your escapade..sounds really interesting. So now your tv committments are over you have only have 16 days to enter our junkfest..lol

ok, that was almost easy ;-) disassembled a few things, answered a few questions and after less than 3 hours we were done. it will be on air in around 2 weeks. i will post the link to the video as soon as it is online.

by

Excellent, you must keep us informed on this. Good Job Markus.

by

promised ;-) since the topic was ifixit and apple i hat to disassemble 2 macbooks and an iphone 3g - using the tools i got for making the teardown (btw - they are great!) and wearing one of my ifixit shirts - lol - i guess the best part might be the take we did outside, me, standing next to a large manifesto poster with an almost braindead stare (wearing the shirt, shorts and chucks - we've had around 4°C (39°F)).....LOL

by

That's mighty cold, but it sounds like fun! We're looking forward to seeing the video!

news from the tv front:

i will do the arte tv thing and talk a little bit about the stuff we're doing here - most likely it will show very similar things like the one on on3.

but there is a earlier date too - today i got a call to do something for the "Bayerischer Rundfunk" (again :-))

next monday they want to do something for a different show - and not to forget that another radio station wanted an interview.

it's still very strange......

you go markus...;-) Good job and a message worthwhile to be distributed. When you are rich and famous, and we can see you on the cover of "wired" magazine, don't forget your colleagues on ifixit...:-) Just kidding, good luck and let us know if there is any way we can watch it or listen to it.

by

This is great you're getting so much coverage, I'm hoping the fixers movement can spread. It's also great work Kyle and all are doing with the documentary, I really hope this stuff takes off. Keep it up.

by

rich and famous - lol - i will post the link to the video as soon as it's online

by

have fun, and if you can find your way to showing how to fix an ibook power connector on the mainboard that would be a bonus!

by

jen, please send me an email with a few more details - of all your (electronic) problem childs

did a good job Markus...

thanks jen, 1 hour ago, kyle forwarded an email from a french/german tv station (arte) to me..... -> "We are interested in doing a piece about Ifixit, unfortunately we can not come to the States to interview you guys but I wonder if you could recommend me somebody in Europe who is active in the IFixIt community. Of course he/she should not speak for your company, I would ask personal questions, motivation etc.

Somebody from the UK or Germany would be great but as log as he/she speaks English it is all good. It would be of course also important that he/she shares your environmental issues. " - so, maybe anyone from the UK is interested, anyone, anyone - JEN? JEEEEENNN???? ;-)

by

how flattering!!! I like the idea but I'm no expert at anything..I'm a tinkerer, just look at my recent failure with an iBook (and dropping my iphone in a toilet today!)as evidence of that! If you want to forward my details I'll see what I can offer,yes I believe in the iFixit philosophy and like helping others with what I have learned but I'm not like you who has background in this sort of thing..I'm a nurse!
