Thanks, Beth, great slideshow. The convergence of 3D printing and content tools gets my vote for the most interesting ones. Cloud and social networking stuff get a lot of buzz, but I guess I'm still as skeptical as many of those veteran engineers.

Both are far-reaching in both implementation and implications, and they're interrelated, as well.
Nice slide show, Beth. The one that will be fun to watch is the development of social media in the design process. In a story you did recently, you talked about design engineers taking cues from a group outside the actual design process. Now that idea was new.
