The New Yorker provides an alternative view to how most of us think about printers. Who doesn’t see themselves as the star in the Office Space scene with that printer. But there’s more.

Engineers tend to work in narrow subspecialties, but solving a jam requires knowledge of physics, chemistry, mechanical engineering, computer programming, and interface design.

Never thought about it this way before, a fascinating read. (Personally the last printer I owned was more than 5 years ago.)
