In september 27 2012 I wrote: 

 

There is a technology lurking in the background sometimes described as Computer Numerical Control (CNC). Set to become the biggest new technology in coming years, 3d printing is not as new a technology as most people might think, and with the prices and availability of different models, 3d printing may well soon be ready for the home. In fact its been around since the 1970s – my nephew has used a 3d printing machine whilst studying architecture for manufacturing prototypes.... http://www.integralconnect.com/blog/internet-lifestyle-part-2/

 

Well, that technology may well be available now in a shop near you!

Fight with us against the Internet's newest threat, CISPA. We will donate to @EFF when you share.
Brian Jones Francis's insight:

So they are at it again… In case you didn’t know CISPA (Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act) was recently re-introduced to Congress, or was that SOPA ? I’m confused!

 

Anyway, so what does that mean to you ?

 

Well, If CISPA is actually passed this means the government will, amongst other things have the power to control the flow of internet traffic and request details of your personal online activities; giving your ISPs the right to share your personal details - now that sounds worrying… or does it ?

 

I mean, if you have nothing to hide, then what’s the problem ? Don’t like the idea of your information being shared without your knowledge ? Hmmmmm I wonder if that is not already happening.
