So far, no roadmap, only a bunch of discussion and a few vision
documents, such as:

Interest in this project has raised to a critical mass, but the online
infrastructure is lagging behind that interest. We have a piece of the
RepRap forum, the list, the domain and a twitter/ account; at
the moment, only the forum and list have activity.

I'm interested in proposals as to how to manage collaboratively
visioning future paths, dependencies etc. for building out the larger
concept of a RepLab suite of tools.

For now, any roadmaps, envisionings, etc. can be posted here; we have
little enough traffic as to prevent an informational black hole.

Sam, this is not conceptually distinct- and we've told you this many,
many times.

The only reason I cross post is because people like you keep running
away. Stop it, please. PLEASE. There has been no discussion on this
list other than your allegations about this.

I prefer forums for constructive discussions.

Open Manufacturing's posting so many posting of articles and links,
might be better served on a blog with an rss feed.

How about we can actually merge even more "singularity" efforts together.

KurzweilAI forums are too poor for the Singularity movement nowadays.

You've presented at the HPlus confrence.

How about a move to the Humanity+ Forums?

Ben Goertzel's a leader there,
So I'm sure we could integrate open manufacturing with humanity+ forums.
Can negotiate with him at
