I love that you can design and print a kayak. You can have as many colors and pattern as you want. This is the first printed kayak. It will get much better. I can have the kayak I've always wanted. For only $500, 42 days of printing, 56 pounds of of ABS, some silicon and about 20 pounds of bolts, washers and nuts.

Totally agree that he's a geek but it looks like a nice shape. Just imagine if you could print a mold of the kayak you want and have it made in fiberglass. Deck lines and hatches would be easy to design into the mold. Bulkheads get added after. I'm sure every kayak manufacturer will be designing kayaks this way. How about a 3D printed fiberglass kayak?

So little music holds up for decades. First listened to YES 40 years ago. Great music when taking a long run. How could they not yet be in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

As a 23andMe user, it's not the FDA right to stop me from seeing my DNA information. 
 
FDA bans 23andMe test kits.

It appears that the medical-industrial complex has finally ordered its flunkies in government to stop people from knowing about their own DNA. 

The FDA thinks that your genes are none of your business. They belong to the corporations that charge by far the highest healthcare costs in the world. 

The FDA ordered +23andMe to immediately stop selling their saliva testing kits. And why? They say it's because it could lead people to seek out the wrong medical treatments. 

The medical industrial complex works like movie theaters -- they can't charge $5 for a bag of popcorn if you bring your own. The medical industrial complex can double their prices only if they have a monopoly on healthcare. The FDA's 23andMe crackdown is part of a larger effort by the government to eliminate alternatives to America's family-crushing, economy-destroying healthcare costs. 

The last thing the medical industrial complex wants is informed citizens with insights into their own genetic information. You're supposed to be a dumb consumer of medical services, blindly obeying your doctor (who has been pressured and paid off by the drug and medical equipment companies to maximize costs). 

You'll notice the FDA is doing nothing about the looming antibiotics disaster or the 100,000 Americans who die each year from prescription drugs. Those are highly profitable for the industry. 

But allowing people to know about their own health? This is what the FDA thinks demands urgent action. 

If the FDA were honestly concerned about the threat of wrong treatment, they would have instead banned +23andMe from revealing or sharing information about the specific diseases they claim to be concerned about, and allow the company to offer results on both the majority of the information they share about disease, and also information about ancestry. 

What they clearly want instead is to financially cripple companies that are informing people about their own health. You can NOT bring your own popcorn into this theater.

I'm not asking for insurance companies to pay for my 23andMe. I should be allowed to do my own research and decide if I want the information they give me. 23andMe doesn't give any medical advice and goes out of the way to say it's not medical advice. Your DNA can give you great information.

I've been an adobe fanboy since the early Pagemaker days. I've spent thousands of dollars on Adobe software. I continue to use many Adobe products almost daily but since Adobe moved to subscription only, I'm stuck on the version 5.5 with no hope of moving forwards. I also want to move to an all cloud based environment. 

I've been a long time reader of John Nack blog. He has been my face to Adobe. I'm thrilled that he is moving to Google. I hope he can make Google a great photo edition company. He would not leave Adobe unless he has the opportunity to make a major impact on cloud based photo editing. Good move Google!

I had to cut my IT spending by over 50% so CC subscription was not possible. A few years ago I would have been the first to sign up.

Installing software seems so outdated. Being able to move from phone, table, laptop and desktop with all my data accessible is a great feeling.

I feel that Adobe has the best design programs for professionals who work on powerful desktops all day. But that's 1% of computer users.  +Julie McCoy let me know how CC works out for you.

Tara makes yoga accessible to everyone. You don't need an hour a day and don't need to go to the yoga studio. Find a few minutes each day wherever you happen to be.

All NY State kayakers should vote yes for Prop 3.
 
Vote YES to Proposal 3 on your ballot tomorrow to help pay for critical sewer upgrades!

So it might not seem like the most exciting question on the statewide ballot. But this is about combating a major source of pollution – and protecting our health.
