Hi Elaine!

Out of sheer curiousity, have you (or anyone else on the list) read Neal
Stephenson's sci-fi book "The Diamond Age"?

It deals HEAVILY with Nano/RP.... and is a great story as well. I figured
the book would be popular with the list, but as I am new to the list myself,
I thought I would throw it out there!

Here's a link to the book on Amazon:

It's really a WONDERFUL visualization of what we might hope to see one day
from Nano/RP!

The music business is a cruel and shallow money trench, a
long plastic hallway where thieves and pimps run free, and
good men die like dogs... There's also a negative side.
