Cool projects: Humblefacture

A really cool talk by Dominic Muren of Humblefactory about manufacturing and design:
"Modern manufacturing produces wondrous objects, in massive quantity, at a low price. But the costs to the environment, social stability, and economic justice are large, and often hidden. Small-scale, localized, clever manufacturing would minimize the ability for this cost hiding to continue. More importantly, local production gives the customer a bigger voice to dictate what they need and want out of products."



Dominic has a lot of interesting articles and analysis on his website humblefacture, very much worth a read:
