Do It Yourself. This has always been part of the human psyche but it has moved from a basic necessity in daily life to an optional tactic for getting something done. With the ease of replacing an object versus repairing it, and the overwhelming variety of items in the marketplace to suit every need and style, the idea of DIYing took a backseat for decades. However, over the last few years we have seen the beginnings of a mindshift, a resurgence in DIY culture that goes well beyond the craftiness of making one’s own jewelry or party favors. Indeed, over the last few years and especially in 2012, we have seen a renewed interest in DIY from designing and making objects with the latest technology like 3D printing, to the growth of a repair culture and the popularity of hacking, modifying and fixing your own electronics.
The change has been exciting to watch, and before the year ends we want to take a moment to glance back over the best of the DIY movement from 2012, from articles to projects to events.
