I remember hearing, back in the mid-1990s, that the WWW will revolutionise people's lives. It would be a massive level playing field where we could
all be publishers, where we could all promote our own art and music, where important ideas could be shared instantly.
Almost 20 years later and we have Facebook, more porn than we could ever masturbate to and /b/.
I'm seeing people talk about 3d printing in the same revolutionary terms as the early WWW years. How we can all be our own entrepreneurs, artists, and
have our own artisan mini-production lines. The reality is, in 20 years time, we'll be creating plastic vaginas with Facebook photographs of girls we
went to school with stuck on the top. Or Staples will be rickrolled into creating Battle Toads figures or similar.
