Can Open Source Hardware Disrupt Manufacturing Industries?

It is with great pleasure to announce that the book is out in which Piet and I have a chapter:

Spaeth, Sebastian, and Piet Hausberg. “Can Open-Source Hardware Disrupt Manufacturing Industries? The Role of Platforms and Trust in the Rise of 3D Printing.” In The Decentralized and Networked Future of Value Creation: 3D Printing and Its Implications for Society, Industry, and Sustainable Development, edited by Jan Peter Ferdinand and Ulrich Petschow. Progress in IS. Berlin: Springer, 2016.
The preproof is on SSRN and you can get the PDF from there too. What is weird is that some freelance journalist seems to have discovered it and loosely retold it (without giving any credit). If he had at least changed the title and not copied it verbatim, I might not even have discovered his plagiarism.
