Rotolito Lombarda and HP PageWide Press Share Some Inkjet LOVE at Hunkeler Innovation Days


One of the biggest reasons I became a member of the HP Page Wide Press fan club is their customers. These daring, creative, and forward thinking printers took a leap into the land of inkjet possibilities long before the technology was in fashion. They pushed the boundaries of the expected and literally created applications with HP PageWide Presses that in […]

With Print Comes Power And Long Life

printed-history _ print-media-centr

My interest in history and my use of popular artificial intelligences have me thinking about how we extend our human selves in terms of power and existence through our technology. Clive Thompson’s Smarter Than You Think (which I wrote about here) informs these thoughts, and I hear whispers of Carl Sagan’s famous words on the […]

This might be the only PMC post about QR Codes in 2016! The undead are ugly. This is certainly true of the shambling “walkers” on the cutting end of Michonne’s blades. But these guys were ugly back when they were alive and popular with marketing departments. We’re talking about QR codes.  Have you noticed chatter and […]

#drupa2016: The Hype, The Hope, And The Social Media Revolution


To paraphrase Jan Brady… “All I hear is drupa is so big, drupa is so great… drupa, drupa, drupa.” Well Jan, and anyone else who isn’t sure whether or not to believe the hype, get out a tall glass and get ready to guzzle down some drupa Kool-Aid, I’m pouring. To get you up to […]

WWDSD (What Would Dr. Seuss Do?)


As some of you might know, I have 4 kids under the age of 7. And that means I read a lot of children’s books. I mean, A LOT. Which is awesome. And as I have been reading them lately, and trying to come up with something to write about for Deb this month, a […]

Still Tight With People In Tights, But Floppy Print Isn’t A Fit

I’m enjoying a refreshed appreciation for printed books as a whole. After a few years of reading electronic books almost exclusively, the luxury of quiet paper bound for a single purpose feels very real. I relish still moments with hardcovers in particular. That said, I’ve mostly phased out the long-loved type of book that led […]

Print is a Lifestyle Choice, Part II

How Print Advanced Civilization and Expanded the Human Mind The famous Wendell Phillips wrote, “What gunpowder did for war the printing press has done for the mind.” From books, to articles, to theories, to how people view the world and life in general, civilization as it is today would be far different without the influence […]

Print is a Lifestyle Choice, Part I


Print and Neuroscience Emily Dickenson once said, “The brain is wider than the sky.” Of course she was right. The statement is as true today as it was then. The human brain is as much a mystery to us as are the cosmos. In fact, The Society for Neuroscience wrote on their website that “The […]
