ScratchML

Now here’s a metadata standard I can get behind:

ScratchML.
We’re creating a format for describing turntablism, as well as tools for recording, analyzing, sharing, and even recreating scratch performances with giant robot arms. We want to do for turntablism what Graffiti Markup Language has done for tagging.

The Pirate Bay begins listing 3D printable objects

We believe that the next step in copying will be made from digital form into physical form. It will be physical objects. Or as we decided to call them: Physibles. Data objects that are able (and feasible) to become physical. We believe that things like three dimensional printers, scanners and such are just the first step. We believe that in the nearby future you will print your spare sparts for your vehicles. You will download your sneakers within 20 years.
