Description

What would you have done if, 50 years ago, you could see the first two digital revolutions in communication and computation coming? In 1965 Gordon Moore famously predicted exponential growth on the performance and capability of digital technology, what is come to be known as Moore's law. 

Today, there is early evidence of a third digital revolution in fabrication. The growth in digital fabrication performance and capability parallels Moore's law, pointing to exponential growth in the ability for anyone to be able to make (almost) anything. The combination of communities being more self-sufficient and individuals being personal generative will fundamentally change markets and the very nature of work. Joel will draw from his new co-authored book, Designing Reality, to show us where to look to best shape the technology now, before it shapes us in ways that we we'll regret.
