Issue: October 11, 2012

Hi everybody,

Every once in a while, a new piece of technology comes along that

changes the way we humans see the world: the wheel, the printing

press, the iPhone. In this week's feature story, our star tech

reporter---note terrible pun---Ashley Hennefer, examines a new tool

that could be the next paradigm shifter: the 3-D printer, which is

able to create objects with the ease with which we stone agers

currently print Word documents. Also in this week's issue, news

editor Dennis Myers takes a look at the way that third party

candidates are excluded from debates, Kris Vagner writes about a

digital media art festival at the University of Nevada, Reno, and, no

biggie, I interview John Lydon of Sex Pistols and Public Image Ltd. fame.

As always, be sure to pick up a newsprint copy for exclusive columns,

cartoons and ink smells.

Thanks for reading! If it weren't for you, we'd have nothing to print at all.
