the END of the Mac Pro as we know it is nigh.
these parts were made by a mold process instead of using a printer to make each part built up from plastic. the parts aren’t finished and require drilling. if you don’t have a drill press or a very steady drill technique you may want to consider other options.
I needed a backup device that transparent like Time Capsule, was more cost effective then a appliance NAS drive, give me the most storage for my money and it had to be something I could self repair. I ended up building a 10 terabyte server powered by FreeNAS for under a $1000.
I've had a lot of printers in my life from letter quality daisy wheels to dot matrix to dye sub to laser. and at some level the businesses I ran wouldn't have been possible without the leveraged use I got from printing without limits. Tom pointing that this same thing is right here with 3D printing is telling.
1) it's ground zero. think of Makerbot as a Epson MX-80 2) there potential for hundreds of new business 3) be prepared to see lots of failure as it engages 4) plastics and resins are toxic. stand by for regulation in California.
the discussion last night over dinner before the show was about lots of different things but one subject was "I want one but I don't know why I want one." this was Kanen answering the question do you want a 3D printer because making 2 is just as easy as making 1.
the 3-5 shot panorama is a really cool way to capture a scene. it's not really a pano but think of it as a S-U-P-E-R W-I-D-E picture as you aren't doing a full 360. you can take these with any camera. it doesn't have to be expensive. and you don't have to have a super wide lens. in fact you may want to shoot you pano using a more zoomed lens instead of the widest setting.
back in August I walked into the studio and noticed that one of my mics was missing. it wasn’t stolen thankfully but it was sprawled out on the floor. and then I discovered why. SNAP! eventually same thing happened to the other three clamps. I’m pretty sure that this clamp was never designed to be used as a permanent installation. why? they all broke in the nearly same place.

get the camera out of default, turn on grid, take more than one shot, edit what you show, and share your photos.
we get asked about doing production and what it takes to get good at doing it. but it's not just about production. you can apply everything that we talk about to programming, science, flying or cooking.
there is a crazy amount of bandwidth and processors that are mostly idle making web hosting a commodity. but even though you can get a web host for a year for less than $10 you might be getting exactly what you paid for.
