Former Editor-in-Chief of "Wired" and bestselling author of "The Long Tail", "Free," and "Makers, The New Industrial Revolution," Chris Anderson, will discuss how 3D printing and drones are revolutionizing manufacturing and transportation and disrupting supply chain models as we know them, at this year's PostalVision 2020 Conference April 10-11 in Washington DC.

And as a special offer, the first 100 paid registrants to PostalVision 2020/4.0 will receive a free copy of Chris's "Makers" at the event. Register here now!'s Jeff Jarvis will return for his third PostalVision 2020 event and talk with Chris by live video about the hazards and opportunities they each see for a future postal ecosystem as the conference explores "Pathways to a New Postal Paradigm."

When it comes to belief in a future role for drones Chris Anderson puts his money where his mouth is. He is the founder of DIY drones and co-founder/CEO of drone developer 3D Robotics that already has 28,000 customers. And if that isn't enough to keep him thinking about disruptive technologies he sees practical applications for 3D printing that go far beyond the toys his children are already manufacturing at home. It will be fascinating to hear him relate what he sees for these technologies to the future of the postal ecosystem.
