Fortune Talks Personal Fabrication

Posted on Thursday 9 November 2006

By way of traffic being sent here from a post over on the MIT Advertising Lab blog, I made my way over to a short article on Fortune titled “A factory of one’s own” (Link) which discusses the future of manufacturing and the growth in personal fabrication. Nothing really new, but still worth a read (all news on personal fabrication is good news at this stage). I’d also suggest reading the AdLab post (Link) as it includes a portion of an essay that carries this into areas about which I frequently post: the intersection of this technology with business. I like the way advertising is called out as a layer of meta-data sitting on top of the truly necessary information; and as such how it could be easily discarded. There’s plenty to consider and plenty to discuss. Hopefully we’ll see more coverage in the press and in the blogosphere.
