“They put a sign up on the door that night: Author of Your Own Destiny…” (Doctorow 93)

In a whirl of passionate (and perhaps necessitated) creativity, a concept manifests: widespread distribution of Three-D printers to communities on the lowest bracket of socio-economic standing. It’s an unmistakably revolutionary idea, but is it safe to assume that these printers will be used for the production of tools, fixtures, and marketable items? Is it not more likely that a majority of users will find it in themselves to create only useless objects? Our class, within its mission, could stand as a testament to either side of the argument, and I would bitterly have to argue that the items I’ve been watching people dedicate ten weeks to serve as antitheses to any form of problem-solving.
