So what is this DIYBio movement? It sits at the confluence of democratizing bioscience and the need to have the tools of science under our control or knowledge. Who are we? Artists, scientists, amateurs{in the best meaning of that word}, but primarily citizens. We have different motivations, skill sets, tool sets, but we share that need to understand, to know, to tinker, to share, to dream, of better futures. To re-examine the ‘old’ technologies and the ‘new’ technologies of biotechnology and to reintroduce them to each other, to de-commodify what we can, and to appropriate what we can’t.¬†
