Chris Anderson on how “parenting gone wrong” turned into a multi million dollar company.
This is interesting stuff. The relatively low cost of this technology gives people the creative freedom with hardware that personal computers provided with software. I’m looking forward to reading his book.
A column in the November issue of Popular Science states that home 3D printers may, in a few years, be capable of printing more materials than plastics, which could further expand that creative freedom.
I also find it very interesting from a socio economic angle. There’s the stuff you can make. But there’s also the relationships that grow out of the stuff you make, and the making of stuff. Shipping manufacturing abroad has really isolated citizens from each other, and the buyer from the vendor and the producer. So I’m curious how people making their own products, or grouping together to make products might bring people back into contact with each other.
