Dear Jim,

    Great idea. I was going to suggest that you link to my paper on Lunar
sintering, but I see you've got it right there at the top of the list.

    Under "Personal Factories," you might want to also link to the articles

        -- : "The
Household Fabricator" describes a residential subdivision built in 2008,
where the homes have a fabricator room, with fab materials supplied by
underground pneumatic tubes.
        -- :
"Automated Fabrication: The Future of Manufacturing" explains how fabbers
will undo the harmful effects of the industrial revolution on mankind,
returning manufacturing to the community.
        -- : "The
Freedom to Create" compares the impact of fabbers on manufacturing to the
impact of books on literacy and of cars on transportation.

and under general RP links: , which has a host
of information on fabbers of all kinds.
