Don't Bet Against 3D Printing, Amazon's "Disruption"

TheStreet (Jan. 14, 2014) — "Big Bang Disruptors" can virtually devastate a business overnight through faster, cheaper and superior technology and that is exactly what 3D printers are doing, says Larry Downes, author of "Big Bang Disruption". As evidenced by the showing at this year's CES the price of 3D printers is coming down and the performance is going up. And for those wondering how to judge whether a company is a Big Bang Disruptor, Downes says look no further than Amazon due to its culture of innovation and undermining its own success.

Breaking Wind: Flatology and How Scientists Study Farts

FORA.tv (Apr. 23, 2013) — Breaking Wind: Flatology and How Scientists Study Farts California Academy of Sciences - California Academy of Sciences Called "America's funniest science writer" by the Washington Post, author Mary Roach takes us down the hatch on an unforgettable tour of our insides. The alimentary canal is classic Roach terrain: the questions inspired by our insides are as taboo, in their own way, as the cadavers in Stiff, and every bit as surreal as the universe of zero gravity explored in Packing for Mars. Why is crunchy food so appealing? Why is it so hard to find names for flavors and smells? Why doesn't the stomach digest itself? How much can you eat before your stomach bursts? Can constipation kill you? Did it kill Elvis? We meet scientists who tackle the questions no one else thinks —or has the courage —to ask. And we go on location to a pet food taste-test lab, a bacteria transplant, and into a live stomach to observe the fate of a meal. Like all of Roach's books, GULP! is as much abou
