The DIY approach has reached a critical pitch, and it reflects a self-responsibility that bodes well for our future. Who can remain unimpressed by the small-scale efforts of so many, which have revived archaic practices like fermenting, knife-making, baking in community ovens, etc? Combining our present tech savvy with rock-solid techniques handed down from previous times is a winning combination. If we can keep it from becoming something out of the pages of the J.Crew catalog (im thinking Kinfolk here), we might be home free. To the point: one hopes to see these trends culminate in an egalitarian foment, reflecting the polytemporal, multi-species diversity which all previous times seem to lead, if not aim, towards.
