Fabber sci-fi

Hi RP Folks,

    I've come across a story on the Internet that some people might find
interesting. If:
        -- You like the terminology of "fabbers" for machines that make
models and products from digitized data, instead of calling them "rapid
prototypers," and
        -- You are into science fiction,
then you might find the story, "Nuke 'em 'till they glow" at
http://www.technopagan.org/public/infowarriors/InfoWar8.htm interesting. The
origination of the story is a little mysterious. The WebMaster of the site
told me it's "probably" by a guy named C.J. Parker, who has a weird
background I don't want to go into here. Anyway, since I am NOT a sci-fi
fan, I don't even know if the story is any good. But I was excited to find
somebody writing about our technology with this terminology.

    By the way, the machine in the story is called an HP DeskFab! What do
you think of that?

Best regards,
