Right now I am noodling whether 3D printing somehow can have a use in print journalism. Most of my professional life has been as a newspaper reporter, editor and online editor. If you remember the old Hewlett-Packard commercials in the 80s when the theme was "what if"...well that sums me up. I tend to look at the what ifs in life, knowing full well that sometimes chasing those what ifs will have negative outcomes, but I am prepared for that. I jokingly tell folks that I have a birth defect which is a love for politics--the more local the better. Over the years I have managed or been the strategist in a lot more political campaigns that I won rather than lost. Personally, the strategies, prospect of winning, and honestly making a change in people's lives is the attraction. While I have lived in six Midwest cities, Chicago is and will always be home.
