Cody Wilson Interview on Idea City (3D Printing & Defcad)
« on: August 16, 2013, 11:16:33 AM »
Cody Wilson did an interesting interview with Ideacity.



He brings up some interesting points, and also mentions crypto-anarchism. Those interested in privacy will likely find crypto-anarchism interesting. But he also goes on about other topics, including The Pirate Bay and a mention of Edward Snowden.

Here's a quick list of general topics he hits on to help you decide if you want to spend 14 minutes watching.

  • 3D printing
  • The Pirate Bay
  • Edward Snowden
  • Legislation - a good deal on this
  • What is happening to him
  • Crypto-anarchism
  • Police state
  • Freedom
  • Politicization of 3D printing
  • Leftist activism/politics (this is surprising and probably NOT what you're thinking)
  • Why did you choose a gun to 3D print?
  • General item printing - distributed manufacturing
  • Rights and weaponry
  • Lots more...

He talks about other things, but that's a quick list.

Here's the BIG picture - he talks about 3D printing as a revolution. You can't casually watch - you need to pay attention. It's a pretty heavy interview.

Strange and interesting interview.

Very. It really isn't what you're expecting when you think of 3D printing, Cody Wilson, and printing guns.

I really like Cody Wilson. He addresses a lot of issues surrounding the technology that sometimes aren't always obvious for a lot of people.

To my mind, the really sad thing is that there's been so many people NOT involved in the development of the technology or software who have done so much political posturing and trash-talking over 3D printing (Self-styled 'anarchists'? I'm talking about you!) that it's became a hot-button political issue a lot sooner than it needed to. Thanks for playing right into the The Man's hands people! Does the phrase "hook, line, and sinker" mean anything to you? :-\

Getting a 3D printer is on the todo list, but not until after moving across continents. Moving is a pain, and the more stuff you have, the worse it is. :(

I want one too. :Thmbsup:

And just thinking out loud here...maybe you could get one and just print yourself a new continent and a new home - and be done with it? ;)

(Would that we could, huh? Would that we could.  :()

I think you're confusing 3D printing with the Star Trek TNG replicator. :)

But yes - sometimes I just wish I could get away from everything, and a new continent would be nice. Well, until someone decided that it needed more democracy... :P

Nope. Just the v2.0 release - which is in early beta right now! :P

^I know. I just couldn't find a good group shot with the replicator that would work with the caption I wanted to use.  ;)

(Lordy, these "Tech" Trekkies! What a buncha nerds.) :P
