Some links in a linkpool for the semi-permanent record.

Started using git/github for a repo that contains markdown documents for links to my dashboards, todo lists, projects and general internet life. Easy to use replicated distributed notebook. #git   #github

The #3dprinting  paradigm is useful in so many ways, and one very exciting and morally unambiguous area is medical care.

USC prototypes #3dprinting  metal parts for consumers. (Link thanks to KurzweilAI.) More evidence that rapid innovation in tools and technologies continues apace. Could lead to lots of economic opportunity for lots of people. If corporate employment continues trending down, will tools like these fuel new craftsman-based economic models?

This whitepaper is a longish read but well worthwhile to get another viewpoint on the importance of #opensource  as it applies to #bioscience  as well as other disciplines. The notion here of the 'tragedy of the anti-commons" is a powerful one, and we see it in other domains as well. This paper is important in its own right for bio-science of course, but also deepens the discourse about open-source and the commons. Thanks to the author and to http://www.oreilly.com/biocoder/ for the link.

Lets hear it for #3dprinting  all the things, including the living things, and the almost living things. I expect the results for health science, and so healthcare, will be astounding. Some aspects of the early 21st century are exceeding expectations in a very good way.
