3D printing is more than the tchotchke on your desk. It's saving lives. (My latest for +Mashable#longreads

Help +Mashable draft a Digital Bill of Rights.
 
With the news that the U.S. government can gain extensive access to user data, there's a question we must answer: How do we protect our digital rights?

We want to create a document to highlight the freedoms and protections that we feel should be guaranteed to us as citizens of the Internet.

Help us create this Digital Bill of Rights by sharing in the comments below what Internet privacies are most important to be protected. You can also participate by +1'ing comments you agree with most.

We'll take the top comments and ask contributors to collaborate with us on a Google Doc. Together, we will create a Digital Bill of Rights for the Internet by the Internet.
