Derek talks about being the Innovator in Residence at the Toronto Reference Library, what classes we've been doing, and how people have embraced the new technology available in the library. For the interactive bit he'll demonstrate four or five different ways of making a 3D model on the computer, using free, cross-platform software.

Derek Quenneville is a 3D printing expert and digital fabrication artist in Toronto, Canada (and the Toronto Reference Library's first Innovator in Residence.)

He demos and teaches 3D modelling and printing, runs Toronto 3D Printers meetups, and gives talks at various non-profits around the city. He has introduced and demoed 3D printing to literally thousands of people at local events since 2009.

Also sometimes he makes games. Holy cow he's a busy dude.

Derek Recommends:

* "Right Ho, Jeeves" by P.G. Wodehouse. It's the second novel-length Jeeves & Wooster story, and there's an audiobook narrated by Jonathan Cecil that brings to mind the voices of Stephen Fry and Hugh Laurie. A feast of wordplay for the brain.

* Super Amazing Wagon Adventure by Sparsevector sparsevector.com/wagon-adventure/ - it's a game with lo-fi visuals and hi-fi heart
