The DIY DH thing may not grab the headlines, but has been around for a 
while:

DIY DH from 2011:
http://www.trevorowens.org/2011/07/the-digital-humanities-as-the-diy-humanities/
Punk Archaeology from 2014:
https://mediterraneanworld.wordpress.com/2014/07/28/punk-archaeology-digital-humanities-and-diy/

I think a major question here is differentiating between academics' 
production, which can be considered part of the job, and DH outside the 
academy or any other institution, 'hobbyist' if you like, but without 
any pejorative sense.

Hi All,

I think one good source of small scale digital projects is graduate
students. I am creating small DH projects to go along with my dissertation,
one of which can be found here:

Jason Heppler has an ongoing dissertation project here:
http://dissertation.jasonheppler.org/ and I'm sure there are many others
creating similar work.

Best,
Brian
