By Isa Farnik If I had a nickel for every time the digital vs. analog photography debate has landed in my lap, I’d be rich. At those argumentative junctures, I reassure myself that it’s not the medium, but the subject which is important. It also underscores the importance/rewards in

Over at the Thingaverse, the free 3D model download community centered around the Makerbot, strange things are afoot. Or a leg, with a whistle sticking out of it on top of a gun.  It seems a mash-up fad has broken out, with people taking 2 or more models and
