Mr 3D Printing Goes to Washington: free conference for Hill rats on Apr 28

Public Knowledge -- whose white paper on the law and 3D printing is required reading -- is throwing a conference in DC for wonks, policymakers, regulators, staffers and all manner of Hill rat. The event's on April 28, and it's free:
On April 28th at 3Dâš¡DC, the 3D printing community will descend on Washington, DC to show policymakers what they are up to. Panels will introduce the 3D printing community to the DC policy community, and explore some of the policy issues that this disruptive technology will implicate. During a demonstration phase, you will be able to see this technology in action first hand, and speak one-on-one with people and companies on the cutting edge. Be the first person in your caucus, at your GS level, or on your adult kickball team to see 3D printing live

  1. whenever I see that font-ish in red, and with a partial-swastika as an art insert (lightning) – I get kinda spooked…
    and they are going where?!

  2. first thing i think of is (of course) the ac dc logo, you might have realized that, or maybe your a little young and do not, nazi affiliation was the last thing on my mind…

  3. “this disruptive technology”…

    The gleam in the eyes of those policymakers is like that of King Herod – who’d like nothing more than to slay this infant technology in it’s sleep.

    “What does this mean for our constituents/bribe-flow?”

    “They’re making ‘widgets’ just like our contributer ‘widge-co’… let’s append an anti-3D printing clause to the ‘fluffy puppies and kittens for freedom’ bill this next session”
