Emerging Innovation and Social Media Trends: Products-on-Demand (PonD) Part II

Last week, I wrote about 3D Printing Plus and the creation of a market place that I call “Products-on-Demand” (hereafter, "PonD")  This week, I’m going to write about what that market will look like in, say, five years when it’s much further along.  Specifically, I’m going to explore what the technology will enable (with emphasis on some of the other trends I’ve detailed: always-on connected computers and networked sensors); how people and companies will use that technology for personal and professional ends; and government’s role in fostering and participating in the space.


Weekly Round-up: December 31, 2012

On behalf of everyone at the Center for The Business of Government, I want to wish you a happy, healthy, exciting 2013.  We look back at 2012 with a mixture of relief, gratitude, amazement, and some sadness.  We bid a fond and heart-felt farewell to our executive director of many years, Jonathan Breul, and shortly thereafter welcomed his successor, Dan Chenok.  We published numerous reports of which we are very proud and hosted insightful guests on The Business of Government Hour.
