3D Printing is Accelerating

Captain Picard at a food replicator

A family member sent me a link to the video below about 3D printing, a space I’ve been writing about for over six years (see posts in 2005 and in 2008). Of course, I’m intrigued by the possibility of having a replicator like on Star Trek and create anything I can think of (and that the computer has a model for I’d guess).

I’d not seen this video before but, in typical fashion, it re-lit my spark about this category and I found myself with some time this morning searching on YouTube about 3D printing.That search led me to the best overview I’ve seen yet about this accelerating printing category from an industrial designer named Scott Summit (his firm: SummitID). Though it’s 50 minutes long, I’ve embedded it for you to watch when you get the time and it’s well worth it.

Connecting the Dots Podcast

Podcasting hit the mainstream in July of 2005 when Apple added podcast show support within iTunes. I'd seen this coming so started podcasting in May of 2005 and kept going until August of 2007. Unfortunately was never 'discovered' by national broadcasters, but made a delightfully large number of connections with people all over the world because of these shows. Click here to view the archive of my podcast posts.
