Scanning 'Torso in Metal from Rock Drill' at Tate Britain I'm interested in network effects, intellectual property, piracy, pop culture, and art. Commerce, institutions vs. individuals, gate-keepers vs. gate-crashers, and technology too.

Since I've been experimenting with 3D design, scanning, and printing, I've realized that 3D printers are actually dematerializers, and that they are going to print — and dissolve — some unexpected things.

For my thoughts and work on museum scanning and 3D printing, see my short video (below) and accompanying essay, Through A Scanner, Getty. This Bloomberg View article and this interview with the MythBusters guys' site cover the big picture stuff too.

The next couple years are going to be a big, exciting mess. I'm going to be in it, trying to do interesting stuff.
