Format: Books
Summary "Cody Wilson was just a law student when he began Defense Distributed, a company of digital radicals that sought to use newly created 3D printing technology to create the world's first-ever 3D printed gun and put the plans on the internet--for free. Cody's first-person narrative is woven through with his exploration of the principles surrounding this morally ambiguous objective: Why a gun? Why use this life-changing technology to create an instrument of destruction, rather than a heart valve or prosthetic limb? Why publish the plans for anyone to download with no profit to himself or others, no matter the potential societal cost? As Wilson takes us on his journey to get the Liberator pistol made, his book touches on the current debate over controversial figures like Edward Snowden and WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange: Is there a limit to our technological breakthroughs, and should there be? Should there be limits to the free exchange of ideas and information? Should software be as free as speech?"--From publisher description.
