Kyle Wiens had a pretty good week. Wiens, the CEO of iFixit and one of the leaders of America's right-to-repair movement, was thrilled to see a ballot measure pass in Massachusetts that will force car makers to make more diagnostics and information available to car owners and third-party repair professionals. It was a hugely expensive fight, but ultimately not a very close one. And Wiens thinks it could be the start of something big for tech repairability in general.
He came on this week's Source Code Podcast to talk about the history of the right-to-repair fight, what happened in Massachusetts this week, and what a rule about cars might mean for the rest of the tech industry. As always, he also told us about a few of the things he's into right now.
