DevOps, Colocation and in the Field
DevOps always seemed like a virtual process that is carried out through unified communication tools, etc. But, the more I think about it, there is a lot to be gained by giving up a cubicle -- instant communication and understanding. An added benefit would be an improvement in the aesthetics of the workplace.
Also, retail cooperative might be a great place for 3D printing to start in scale. For instance, there would be one website where customers would place an order to printer a product and the retail outlet that is closest to the customer would receive instruction to printer the item on their $10,000 3D printer.
