7. During the last hours of the workshop, a publication is printed and assembled, gathering all the participations. During an “apéritif” (an informal public presentation with drinks), the workshop and its subjects are introduced to the visitors, neighbours and guests.

Visiting _ttypp.nl/arch_ is a time machine. This is where the webpages of TYP/Typografisch papier are archived. TYP was a forward-thinking magazine initiated by Dutch graphic designer Max Kisman, published on paper, on floppy disks and online. Surfing through the online editions, one is transported 20 years back, to a period when the World Wide Web had only just begun to arrive on people’s computers. The enthusiasm displayed by designers looking for ways to exploit the new medium is contagious. On the transient space of the internet, it seems like a small miracle that this cultural moment is still accessible.
Surfing around web sites from the nineties on the Internet Archive, one notices that quite a few do not display anymore, among which many sites that use technologies like Shockwave or Flash. web sites using HTML tags, the native tongue of the browser, have generally aged much better. This is no accident: backwards compatibility has always been important for web browser vendors. Since browser vendors have so little control over the markup people write, browsers are very forgiving about the markup. Within HTML5, this tradition has been codified as the parsing of malformed or non-conforming HTML has been standardised.[^1]

## Image Captions
* Contours: shows the contours detected on each image. In addition to tracing the edges, the algorithm connects the lines into a series of distinct segments represented by a different color.
* Red, green, blue: What is significant color information? Contrary to human intuition, for a computer, a white image is an image saturated with red, blue and green. To find the images that look the most blueish, reddish or greenish, we counted only the color values that were superior to the others by a certain threshold.
* Lexicality and Texture: These layers are produced using Tesseract, a software for Optical Character Recognition (OCR). An OCR program operates at different levels of granularity. It can detect lines, words, symbols.
* Lexicality shows the words detected in an image, while Texture shows the symbols detected. Texture is configured to be rather tolerant in its understanding of what a character is. It therefore tends to see characters in very unexpected places.
* Scale-invariant feature transform (SIFT): SIFT features are “interesting” points of an image that can be extracted to provide its “feature description.” This description can then be used to identify (parts of) an image even when rotated or changed.

In a few years, 3D technologies will change the way of making things. 3D printing (or additive manufacturing) already allows anyone to create any shape from scratch based on a digital file: a new method of making which is affordable, environment-friendly and, most importantly, allows for endless possibilities of personalization and customization.
This ability to customize products is what might raise the interest of individuals and the demand for 3D technologies in the home: why not design and make things oneself instead of just being a consumer and buying things?
