Jed To Write Song for us on Tesla
As part of a Crowdfunding campaign to produce a music CD, one of our supporters purchased a custom written song by singer/songwriter Jed. They want it written about Tesla and are donating it to our FabLab project in Maine!

In the meantime…
Jed has written a very cool song Don’t Be Mean to Machines that you can get on his website

Here’s a Clip:  Don’t Be Mean To Machines


Greenwood Tech Strategies to Moderate Webinar on
“The Democratization of Manufacturing”


June 14, 2012 Brunswick, ME:  Dr. Ahmed Busnaina, Director of the National Science Foundation Center for High-rate Nanomanufacturing [CHN], will present a webinar entitled, “The Democratization of Manufacturing”.  The program will be moderated by Sarah Boisvert of Greenwood Tech Strategies, LLC and take place at 11 a.m. EDT on Wednesday June 27, 2012.  The interactive presentation will describe how research in innovative nano-technologies and nano-processes at CHN will bring affordable nanomanufacturing tools to businesses innovators, entrepreneurs, and students.


The Center’s goal is to develop the technology necessary for industry to mass-produce high-quality nanoscale products that will become commercially viable much faster than the usual two-decade time frame. “The collaborative research partnership between the Center and industry is accelerating the development of nanotechnology-based products that can impact a number of industries, including healthcare, microelectronics, sensors and energy,” said Ahmed Busnaina, director of the Center and William Lincoln Smith Professor of mechanical and industrial engineering at Northeastern. “Our research is developing more cost-effective, safe and highly reliable processes that can be scaled up for large-scale manufacturing.”


Dr. Busnaina will address CHN innovation in the development of nanoplates to be used as tooling for an economically realistic production process and tooling. CHN hopes to construct self-assembling nano-building blocks over large areas in high-rate, scalable, commercially viable processes such as injection molding and extrusion.


The NSF-funded Nanoscale Science and Engineering Center for High-rate Nanomanufacturing is a collaborative effort with core research partners Northeastern University’s George J. Kostas Nanoscale Technology and Manufacturing Research Center, the University of Massachusetts, Lowell, and the University of New Hampshire.


Greenwood Tech Strategies, LLC is a micro and nanomanufacturing company, creating products for the sensors, medical device, microelectronics and energy markets.  Funding from the Maine Technology Institute is focused on micro-wireless sensors for the aeronautics industry and the company plans to re-locate to Brunswick Landing in the fall of 2012.  Ms. Boisvert is a Fellow of the Laser Institute of America and has created an innovative webinar series as outreach for micro and nano technology education.
