Shapeways interviews Janne Kyttanen of FOC

Very nice interview... and very funny how it coincides with a certain remark that Joris received from me earlier today. I don't know if the interview was up at that time, but I swear I didn't see it yet, in any case...

For my own sanity, I sometimes replace the word 3d printing with 'claying'. Just to keep things in perspective.

Is it just me, or is this guy pompous?

When he is asked why there are so many 3D printed designs are lights, this is his response:

"Probably because I went to Materialise 1998, they liked my lights and I was able to convince them to invest into a new department, initially focused on making lights"

Could it not be because a hollow white sculptural form makes a beautiful lamp? Could it not be because many 3d printing materials have a great translucence? Just because he had the privilege to be one of the first to have access to 3D printing, he was one of the first to make a lamp with the materials available. Pioneers make the first things that come naturally to human thought patterns. The real "innovators" come later.
