I have turned this effort into a project! See http://cardboard-warriors.proboards.com/thread/6689/stone-soup-designer-staircase-sampler

"OldSchoolDM's Popup Terrain: Designer Staircase Sampler"  and am actively recruiting contributors! (See details at the thread above.) +mauther papermau  I'd love to have one of your authentic European stone building design textures in the set! Of course, you could distribute whatever you make here on Papermau (and maybe extend one of your existing models.
North American designer and modeler Oldschooldm created some really cool and very original pop up paper models, that are perfect for Dioramas, RPG and Wargames. They are great as stand for mini figures too. Take a visit at his post at Cardboard Warriors forum to see more photos, know more and ...

I just got this from the USPTO:

"


The facts are alarming: the cybersecurity threat to the U.S. – and the world – is real and growing.  The Economist Magazine reported early this year (February 2014) that a security firm estimated cybercrime costs the world $113 billion a year and affects 378 million people, while a research institute estimated malicious cyber-attacks in 2012 cost U.S. companies $277 for each customer’s or user’s account put at risk.

 

To combat the threat, the United States Department of Commerce, specifically the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) and National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have teamed up to explore viable cybersecurity solutions and we need your help!

 

NIST’s Request for Information (RFI) is accessible at: https://federalregister.gov/a/2014-20315. The 45-day comment period ends October 10, 2014. All RFI responses should be submitted to cyberframework@nist.gov and will be posted on NIST's website.

 

Background Information

 

In 2013, the Framework for Improving Critical Infrastructure Cybersecurity call to action was introduced by President Obama in Executive Order (13636).  The Department of Commerce is playing a crucial role to establish the framework and connect the government’s efforts to the business community.  U.S. Secretary of Commerce Penny Pritzker said “The Obama administration and Commerce Department are committed to continue supporting this framework to ensure it keeps up with evolving cyber threats and the needs of American businesses.”

 

In response to the Executive Order, NIST developed Cybersecurity Framework Version 1.0, which includes standards, guidelines, and practices that organizations of all types can use to create, guide, assess or improve cybersecurity programs.  NIST has recently issued a Request for Information to gain an understanding of organizations' awareness of and experiences with version 1.0 of the Framework. 

 

Upcoming Initiatives

 

Moving forward, the USPTO is pursuing initiatives to work with stakeholders on finding ways new cybersecurity technology can be quickly moved into the marketplace and ensure patents related to the technology are of the highest quality.

 

The initiatives include:

·        Hosting a Cybersecurity Partnership Customer meeting on November 14, 2014 to discuss topics related to cybersecurity. Meeting participants will be invited to share ideas on what activities the USPTO should initiate or expand.

·        Hosting a roundtable discussion with cyber startups later in 2015 to increase awareness of the importance of protecting intellectual property (IP) and to promote the USPTO’s application programs. Participants will be encouraged to share information about hurdles or issues startups face when trying to implement an IP strategy – and how the USPTO can help them.

·        Working with industry experts to further expand training opportunities for patent examiners on cybersecurity standards and emerging technologies.  The USPTO welcomes partnering on training with innovators in cybersecurity and network security from private industry, academia and other government organizations.  Leaders in this important sector are encouraged to volunteer and share their expertise by applying through our Patent Examiner Technical Training Program.

More information on the November 14 meeting will be forthcoming on the USPTO’s Initiatives & Events webpage within a month.

For more information on the initiatives please contact us by e-mail at cybersecuritypartnership@uspto.gov"

Are there are some of my capabilities-systems design folk friends that may wish to take one more tilt at the Fed windmill?
