DIY Culture is about people formulating their own lifestyles, creating their own systems, setting their own agendas, raising their own issues, using their own vocabulary and finding their own ways to deal with problems rather than waiting for someone else to do it.
DIY Culture is associated with a revival of non-violent direct action: protests against the M3 extension through Twyford Down in Hampshire were a catalyst.
Some DIY Culture is linked with the mainstream media, using innovative direct action to capture the attention of national newspapers, television and radio, thereby raising issues and stimulating debate.

The ethic is based on the belief that a person can survive with little or no participation in the consumerist culture of our dominant society.
It is my understanding that the DIY ethic comes from the idea of not relying on the government, corporations, or organized religion to support your lifestyle.

This short Wired News article directed me to the The DIY Report, a new subscription website with a focus on "on teaching people how to create, promote, protect and distribute independent film, music and books using online and offline techniques." Most of the content requires that you be subscribed, so it's hard to evaluate it.
To me, DIY media is about independence and exploiting the freedom to be creative and critical when you're not beholden to a larger, more powerful interest, be it corporate, the state or even an NGO.
That's not going to happen if DIY is really just independent folks working in parallel, using the same techniques and operating under the same assumptions.

These days the Lo-Fi approach is applied to many radically different art forms: music, visual art, film, craft, writing, political activism, social protest – but with “DIY: The Rise Of Lo-Fi Culture”, Spencer concentrates on the arenas of words and music – two fundamental disciplines within which the DIY ethic has both history and future.
The impact of technology has once again breathed new life into the spirit of DIY, and Spencer ably considers the implications and pitfalls of ‘the new’ on the ideals and beliefs of ‘the old’.

Punk rock and hardcore music arose from an underground subculture in the '70s and '80s that wasn’t satisfied with society; it was music that had something to say and demanded attention.
Though they wanted to be heard, they wanted it on their own terms and shunned commercialism in music, creating a strong do-it-yourself ethic (DIY).
The music itself has evolved into new sounds in many instances, but they still demand to be heard and continue to adhere to a DIY ethic.

If your site does not have genuinely useful DIY info, doesn’t offer services that are useful to the DIY community, and/or doesn’t serve a purpose that empowers people to create something, we’re not going to surf past three pages of popups to get to it.
However, we have a pretty strict view of the DIY ethic here, and don’t want to become an advertising clearinghouse.
If you’re a band label that started as a DIY and is now making a profit, yes, that still counts as DIY, but after a certain threshhold you should contact us to talk about sponsored link options; you’re who we had in mind.
