Joel Johnson on Chris Anderson

Oh, more must-read today! In which Joel Johnson discusses Wired editor Chris Anderson’s thoughts on “atoms are the new bits.” (I know, wot?) “To marvel that you can convince a Chinese company to make a small batch of electronics for you? In many cases, that’s when conditions are worst. Try to get something that is more than a greenboard made and you’re back to standard manufacturing issues like making dies for stamping parts. Why? Because real 3D printers don’t exist yet.”
