The continuously growing availability of digital Do-It-Yourself (DiDIY) manufacturing devices creates many opportunities, for both individuals and local communities, to make and manage by themselves everything they may need.
The phenomenon of Digital Do It Yourself (DiDIY) brings disruptive innovations which affect professional producers as well as everyday citizens. Online connectivity, digital production and rapid prototyping enable people to create, promote and distribute all kinds of intangible and physical things where previously this would have been difficult or impossible.
The phenomenon of ‘digital Do It Yourself’ (DiDIY) has much to offer to creative society. By ‘creative society’ we mean the levels of creativity in society – which are vital for both personal well-being and economic growth. The rise of online communication has meant that for many years now creative people have been able to share ideas, have conversations and inspire each other via the internet.
