  1. ” about robotic 3D printers that sinter lunar regolith” probably a sign of abject personal ignorance, but I’m I the only one who had look up both “sinter” and “regolith”?  Thought it was a Lovecraft thing at first.

    Until I joined a Write-A-Thon (which happens tomorrow June 9) I had never even heard of one, now I know of two which have San Diego connections.  Wow.  How about supporting my work on a mystery novel about steam trains?  http://sandiegowriters.blazinglaptops2013.dojiggy.com/kimink

    Classic Heinlein spoof of marketing, censorship and government graft + Burning Man + Cory Doctorow twist = awesome

    My only critical observation would be that self-replicating sintering robots are closer in spirit to the older concept of von Neumann probes. On the other hand, it seems likely that Markers will play key parts in the actual realization of von Neumann probes, which are, I suspect, the key to opening permanent research stations and maybe…just maybe…human settlements.
