Scott Stringer Expands On MakerBot And NYC Tech
On Tuesday we had the great pleasure of hosting Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer here at MakerBot. We knew he was a fan already, but the video from The L Magazine gives a nice review of how Mr. Stringer sees MakerBot fitting into the exciting tech landscape here in New York City.
What I love about MakerBot and 3D printing is that this is an industry that’s on the move. And New York has to continue to be on the cutting edge. … I get energized about what the city could be like when you come and take a tour like this. … This is the energy; this is the new light manufacturing that can create a lot, a lot of jobs, put money into our economy, and continue to make New York edgy, and the place that everyone around the world wants to come and be in.
The video also has a great timeline from our CEO, Bre Pettis, who explains some of the history of our products and how we grew out of the hackerspace Bre co-founded, NYC Resistor.
By the way, we tried to give Scott a MakerBotted replica of his borough’s most famous icon, but Politicker writes that he was mindful of the rules!
“We can put it in the office, not home,” Mr. Stringer said. “That’s the law.”
