Codecademy gets Ruby | Computer Science in Middle and High Schools | Scoop.it
Codecademy, Startuplandia's favorite online coding teacher, has just added Ruby to its library of courses.

 

“Ruby is one of our most requested languages, and we’re psyched to finally be able to offer it to our users,” said Codecademyco-founder Zach Sims in an email conversation with VentureBeat this morning.

How 3-D printing will radically change the world

How 3-D printing will radically change the world | Computer Science in Middle and High Schools | Scoop.it

M. Philip Oliver's curator insight, May 13, 1:35 PM

Thanks Susan! Great Post to peruse

Stephen Dale's curator insight, May 30, 12:16 AM

From the article: "3-D printing technology is advancing at a staggering rate. American designers are now working on 3-D printed cars, while in China andHolland, 3-D printers are building entire houses. The first 3-D printed hamburger was recently created in England, heralding the possibility of a man-made food supply."


But...


The hype over 3-D printing, say technology experts, ignores the potential problems it will create. One significant problem is the legality and ethical ramifications of widespread public use. Right now, additive manufacturing (the technical term for 3-D printing) is in its "Wild West" phase, meaning, the laws have not yet caught up with the technology.

 

An example of this is 3-D printed guns. Last year, blueprints for a 3-D-printable gun, The Liberator, were posted online and downloaded some 100,000 times before the State Department ordered them taken down.


So...it's going to be a while before you can use a 3D printer to print you some new followers on social media networks...but watch this space!
