The concept of do-it-yourself or DIY gained popularity in the late 1960s when philosopher Alan Watts started a panel discussion in the San Franciso Oracle claiming that our educational system “does nothing to give us any kind of material competence.” By the 1970s, DIY was a full-blown movement that began with home repairs. The desire to fix things yourself has been especially popular in times of economic downturn.
