Learn Do Share is a collaborative booksprint that captures the thoughts, projects and spirit of each diy days event. Written, edited and published by attendees of the event, LDS is released under a creative commons license and is intended to be added to and remixed. You can download the 65 page ebook for FREE here. It’s a wonderful look at creativity, storytelling, and collaborative design in the 21st Century.
The UrbanTimes has a nice write up on the first edition of Learn Do Share.
As a by-product of my research projects, I sometimes come across great conceptual experiments that use contemporary ingredients and new methodologies in innovative set ups.
‘Learn Do Share‘ is the account of such an unusual experiment: DIY Days NYC was an interactive conference with workshops at the beginning of the year. I found the eBook last week released under a creative commons license to be shared remixed and expanded. The following is a summary cross-referenced with some of the topics I have been researching and writing about previously.
As explained in Participatory Trends: We Communicate, Connect and Share, the trend of collaborative consumption evolves with the enthusiasm built around fast communication technology and the global movement of ‘Sharing’.
DIY Days in New York aimed high: Inspired by the visionary Buckminster Fuller, the challenge was how to make the world work for 100% of humanity.
The answer was co-creation, using storytelling as the tool to get started.
diy days heads to Gothenburg Sweden on February 2nd.
Tickets are free but space is limited.
