Beware, 3-d printing will be the next Napster -- "the Napster of manufacturing", period!

3-d printing will be somehow a preceding technology in the human evolutionary chain that might lead to "STAR TREK The Next Generation" type of "replicator". A printer, replicator, synthesizer or whatever you would call such a future machine, filled with cartridges that hold basic chemical elements or DNA. It will create copyright and royalties questions in never seen dimensions, and it will be so disruptive that it will surely distroy companies moats. Just in its infancy, personal 3-d printing technology already shows the same disruptive potential as Napster. Broken dishwasher part? Download illegally the relevant CAD file of the broken part and now print it out in plastic. Funny thing,... hasn't money become obsolete in the Star Trek:TNG federation world and only the kinky Ferengi traded in Gold-Pressed Latinum. I have a thesis  ::),... the napstering of everything through this replication process!

I've given up on trying to figure out "the future"...it's in the "too hard" pile. However, it's cool to simply stop being as analytical as we value investors tend to be and just marvel at the technology. The "print" of the woman's head was remarkable.
