Do it Make it Yourself

Abstract:
Glenn Harlan Reynolds: I'm currently reading Neil Gershenfeld's new book, Fab: The Coming Revolution on Your Desktop: From Personal Computers to Personal Fabrication, and I'm finding it very interesting. It seems that the future may be arriving sooner than I had expected.

This is nothing new to me, in a way. I've long been interested in nanotechnology, and nanotechnology enthusiasts have long been predicting an age in which general-purpose nano-fabricators allow people to make nearly anything on-site, out of cheap raw materials. "Sunlight and dirt," to use the standard buzzphrase. But Gershenfeld makes clear that we won't have to wait for nanotechnology to move a long, long way in the direction of what he calls personal fabrication.
