Disruptions: With a 3-D Printer, Building a Gun With the Push of a Button by Nick Bilton for The New York Times Oct. 7, 2012
It won’t be long before a felon, unable to buy a gun legally, can print one at home. Teenagers could make them in their bedroom while their parents think they are “playing on their computer.” I’m talking about a fully functional gun, where the schematic is downloaded free from the Internet and built on a 3-D printer, all with the click of a button.
“What’s great about the Wiki Weapon is it only needs to be lethal once,” Mr. Wilson says in the video, in a monotone voice. “We will have the reality of a weapons system that can be printed out from your desk. Anywhere there is a computer, there is a weapon.”
The future. It is scary.

We’re all on our own if Romney has his way.

The Rapid Response team at the DNC put together this video of Romney himself adding commentary to Romney’s latest ad. Disclaimer: I readily acknowledge that the “I like to fire people” line is taken out of context. Still, the videogets to the hypocrisy and outright lies that fuel this campaign.

Well, at least there is some good news coming out of Kinnick–lord knows the football team isn’t providing any.
The University of Iowa’s recycling efforts at Kinnick Stadium increased between the football team’s first and second home games.
During the first game volunteers collected more than two tons of recyclables, and diverted 40 percent of the waste that would have gone to the landfill.
During the second home game volunteers collected more than three tons of recyclables, and diverted 57 percent of the waste from the landfill.
