Talk at Thinking Digital

439

Published on

I was asked to talk at Thinking Digital about our project using 3D scanning and 3D printing and trains. What emerged was something a bit more about the industrial revolution and thinking about the lessons we should learn from it and how we can weave them into the future industrial revolution which will spring from additive manufacturing.

  16. 16. "There was a deep satisfaction aboutmaking things," he said. "A deepsatisfaction among all of those that hadsupplied the services, whether it was thelocal bankers with credit; whether it wasthe local design firms. When a ship waslaunched at [Newcastle firm] Swan Hunterall the kids at the local school went to seethe thing our fathers had put together andwhen we looked down from the cross-wired fence, tried to find Uncle Mick, UncleJim or your dad, this notion of anintegrated, productive community wasquite astonishing."Thursday, 30 May 13
