Do It Yourself – DIY – happens when people and communities just go ahead and make something for themselves, without waiting for a professional or for permission. DiDIY (Digital DIY) is the huge boost to this activity – and the associated ‘can do’ mindset – facilitated by digital technologies, through the sharing of designs, tools, support, and inspiration.
