Forums – regular meetings and Book Circles – meet at 6:30 at the Panera Bread Co. community room (875 Bethel Road).
Forum: June 20 - - Topic: Book Circle: Makers: The new industrial revolution, by Chris Anderson (also available in e-formats)
For discussion: The “maker” culture is becoming an increasingly popular topic of discussion. Consider two articles from the December 2012 The Atlantic Magazine: The Insourcing Boom by Charles Fishman, and Mr. China Comes To America, by James Fallows. And the possible dark side of personalized fabrication: the Defense Distributed website, which has been at the point of controversy about 3D printing, of magazines, even guns, and other weapon-related products.
We look forward to seeing you and pursuing a unique discussion at this meeting of the Columbus Futurists!
