‘How to DIY’

Sharing Culture, ‘Do-It-Yourself’, and ‘How to’ tutorials. About the sense and nonsense of DIY. Youtube video how to’s and as a new entertainment format.

What are the basic rules of the DIY genre and how did it develop in history? Which one are the best, funniest, most stupid and most useful ‘how to’s’? Where does the development lead to? What role plays Open Source and digital fabrication in this context?

How to’s for the sake of how to’s. Amateur, professionel and kids. Fame, views and hits. Fast and simple. 4 steps or 90 seconds. Teaching, sharing, show off and the technology driven society.
