Fab

I just started reading Neil Gershenfeld's new book "Fab," which lays out the future of machines that make machines (think of a printer that can print "things" rather than images). I loved this line from the intro:


Like the earlier transition from mainframes to PCs, the capabilities of machine tools will become accessible to ordinary people in the form of personal fabricators (PFs). This time around, though, the implications are likely to be even greater because what's being personalized is our physcial world of atoms rather than the computer's digital world of bits.


I hope to post more about the book in coming days...

ps: In case you weren't aware, many of the titles of my blogs are hyperlinked to articles, Amazon.com, etc. :)

will return! I peep the web for blogs just like this

It may look like it was hard work, but my nose plastic surgery blog was simple.

Why was there no follow on bankruptcy then? The bailout of AIG FP went to (wow power leveling) hedge funds that bound credit swaps on Lehman failing or others betting on rating (wow power leveling) declines. AIG has drained over 100 billion from the government. Which had to go to (wow power leveling) those who bet on failures and downgrades. Many of whom (power leveling)were hedge funds. I-banks that had offsetting swaps needed the money from the AIG bailout or they would have been caught. Its an (wow powerleveling) insiders game and it takes just a little bit too much time for most people to think (wow gold) through where the AIG 100 billion bailout money went to, hedge funds and players, many of whom hire from the top ranks of DOJ, Fed, Treasury, CAOBO
