Protecting 3D Printing Designs: Featured Speaker Patience Jones
As the consumer 3D printer space grows, so too are concerns about pirating of digital files which allow people to 3D print designs without the designers permission or any direct compensation for its use. In a way, the physical world is about to embark on a similar journey the media industry continues to struggle with in managing and monetizing products that have now gone digital. We sat down with Designers of Things speaker, Patience Jones, who graduated from the University of Michigan Law school to get glimpse into this topic which she will be also speaking about at the conference in September.

I had a dream once where Neil deGrasse Tyson smashed my cellphone (which was not then a Samsung model, so maybe that’s why?). Then, with a wave of his hand, he put my cell phone back together. He pushed it into my outstretched palm and said, Don’t thank me, thank Quantum mechanics. He said, Call your mother. When I woke up, I did both things in that order, but my dad answered and said, Hey listen, we didn’t want to worry you, but your mom’s been shitting blood and so we’ve been at the hospital since yesterday. My mom did not die but she almost did and details of her illness aside, this proves that Neil deGrasse Tyson is watching out for me. It proves we are cosmically linked. He would laugh at my faith and remind me that we are all made of stars and isn’t that an even more powerful story?

Diversity in top editorial spots is nearly non-existent. 

Introduction by Manjula Martin, Data visualization and research by Vijith Assar, Interactive Graphic: Diversity in Journalism - Scratch Magazine

As it turns out, there isn’t really enough data to make an interactive graphic about diversity among top newsroom editorial positions that doesn’t make you have to squint to see the racial breakdown in the first place—because there isn’t really any racial diversity at all. The results are barely improved when it comes to gender. Any way you click it, of the 183 top editors of mainstream English-language media outlets Assar counted here, one is a black man. Nine are white women (and two of them are Tina Brown). Parity ticks slightly upward after the 1980s. But that’s it.

All in all, this chart covers approximately 1500 combined “man-years” of top editorial positions (and that’s not a gender-neutral pronoun). Of those years, ~1486 were led by men and ~36 were led by women. All were led by white people except for the months since Dean Baquet, who is African American, took over the New York Times in May 2014.
