Attempted to comment on Gosling’s post.

Not that you likely have any shortage of suggestions - but if in your shoes I would take a close look at the zoo that includes RepRap, CupcakeCNC, and a host of related devices. Feels very much like the experimentation with small microprocessor-based computers of the late 1970’s. Maker’s Faire is next month (in the SF area), so there will be lots to see first-hand. Whether you are interested in building small fabricators, or in the software (and these devices are very software-intense) … this is very, very interesting stuff. Just as small computers transformed the world over a couple decades, I expect this smart, small-scale, on-demand fabrication will transform manufacture. </p>

What exactly in the above comment is likely to be taken as spam, and/or blacklisted??

After a bit of experimentation … it seems Gosling does not like me. Guess that is an achievement of sorts.
