Digital DIY: a social, cultural and economical phenomenon

  1. 1. Digital DIY: a social, cultural and economical phenomenon fOSSa Nantes 24 September 2015 by Marco Fioretti
  2. 2. CC BY-SA Marco Fioretti marco@freeknowledge.eu What is Digital DIY? ● a social, NOT technical phenomenon, based on – Much easier and cheaper production of all sorts of“products”, including “unique” or «smart» ones – accessibility of the related knowledge ● whose greatest «enemies» are NOT technical limits, as much as legal, social and political barriers
  3. 3. CC BY-SA Marco Fioretti marco@freeknowledge.eu Impacts of Digital DIY? ● DiDIY touches many sensitive areas, from privacy and culture to responsibility, safety and fairness ● Far-ranging consequences on rights, responsibilities and opportunities of individuals, organizations and society
  4. 4. CC BY-SA Marco Fioretti marco@freeknowledge.eu DiDIY: often, still searching for PURPOSE «Hey, I finally 3D printed something useful!» (and it's a LOW-tech spare part!)
  5. 5. CC BY-SA Marco Fioretti marco@freeknowledge.eu ...and still distant from people ● 3D print is a buzzword exploited by mainstream media ● But for the general public, DiDIY as a whole is still: ● even more remote than... Free/Open Source Software ● very far from being really known, or even perceived as really relevant
  6. 6. CC BY-SA Marco Fioretti marco@freeknowledge.eu DiDIY: MUCH more than 3D printing and/or High Tech The biggest, most relevant impacts of DiDIY will come from its arrival into «low- tech» sectors and basic needs of society: Agriculture Furniture clothing
  7. 7. CC BY-SA Marco Fioretti marco@freeknowledge.eu A 3D printer in every home? ● Probably a terrible idea. Above all: WHY? WHAT FOR? Image: Marcello Casal Jr./Agência Brasil, from Wikipedia - CC By 2.5 ● Whereas an pay-per-use «Digital DIY center»: – in every city block... – properly supported and regulated ● May have a HUGE impact
  8. 8. CC BY-SA Marco Fioretti marco@freeknowledge.eu DiDIY in organization and work ● scarcely related to the skills of individuals ● promotes reliance on individual initiative and Commons based peer production ● challenges traditional institutions and norms that establish control ● changes workplace processes and structures
  9. 9. CC BY-SA Marco Fioretti marco@freeknowledge.eu Digital DIY Education and Research new teaching and learning opportunities, from primary schools to universities
  10. 10. CC BY-SA Marco Fioretti marco@freeknowledge.eu Digital DIY and Creativity ● DiDIY is an ethos and mindset ● impacts on individual creativity ● brings disruptive innovation on the whole society ● makes possible stronger connections between hands-on creative practices, networked people, and shared, open design processes
  11. 11. CC BY-SA Marco Fioretti marco@freeknowledge.eu Digital DIY and Ethics ● “The ability to reproduce potentially anything MAY mean ‘radical abundance’ but surely means radical dissolution” ● extends Pirate Bay-level “piracy”, or sharing, to the physical realm ● But, unlike music, physical objects can be directly, physically HARMFUL: – “forget” weapons or viruses: think medical devices, furniture, car parts... – raising whole new issues of ‘consumer’ safety and property rights ● Digital DIY forces societies to renegotiate general ethical norms, that is what is “the right thing to do” ● Being prepared for this requires specific research
