It's sad that the first order of business each morning is to delete the dozen or more virus and solicitation notifications. I'm still listening, hoping for resolution to this problem.

Boeing is sending at least 3 people that I know of to the RP&M event. I attended last year for the first time and was impressed by the breadth of players. We also have at least 4 going to the SLA/SLS UG next week, including me. The Boeing Company continues to pursue both Rapid Prototyping and Rapid Manufacturing via internal and external R&D. I believe digital additive production is a huge frontier and will go way beyond a niche technology. About 2 years ago my group changed it's name from "Prototype" to "Product" to reflect this. I am excited for the opportunity to participate in a field with such potential.

Unless I'm just having technical difficulties, it doesn't appear that there are very many people left (or interested in) the rpml. Most of the very few posts now made seem to be by the same handful, or two, of people. Could a few of you, who may not regularly participate post something new, so that we might see some renewed life in the rpml. Supposedly there are still well over 1000 subscribers, but the participation level doesn't seem to support this number. Also, are there very many people from outside Michigan or the US attending the Dearborn, MI. RP conference this year and what are your opinions about the importance, usefulness or cost effectiveness of attending these? Is it still a MUST ATTEND event? Please suggest some other topics of discussion. Also, Marshall, did you get any response to your recent inquiry about research money?
