Link Roundup 8/2/2013

Whew!  Lots in the news!

3D Printing:

3D Printers can pay for themselves in a year – I also wonder what the environmental impact changes are as well.  Now you have ANOTHER excuse to get one!

Also since you could scan objects to 3D print with your browser then you have even more reasons to get one.  Also if 3D printing goes big, then imagine the other forms of scanning and interface that could happen.  Say tablet cameras . . .


A comic on the Stonewall riots on Indiegogo?  A chance to fund indie comics and capture a piece of history that’s very relevant now.  Quick thought – what other historical occurrences could be described in comics form that you could do?

Law And Technology:

Feds say Apple have to give access to Amazon and Barnes And Noble.  It’s a tad fuzzy, but interesting reading.


Omni is coming back.  I’m hopeful that this also brings back “futurism cool,” but wait to see what happens. Wonder what other magazines and pubs out there could be revived?  Might be something for you to try . . .


IMPORTANT: People are copying crowdfunding campaigns as a scam.  Indiegogo seems especially vulnerable because of their methods.
