Before SOCMA, he worked for AMC Theaters as a general manager and manager.
Congratulations to Sang Lee, IDSA’s program coordinator, who was sworn in on April 2 as a US citizen in a ceremony at an Alexandria VA high school. Sang and his family came from South Korea to live in the United States when he was 10. He decided recently to become a citizen of the US. “I’ve always wanted to be a citizen of the US, because I knew it would create more opportunities for me,” he said.
The Texas Co-Op, a special section of the Fair, will become an on-site laboratory for the demonstration and interaction with 3D printing and CNC technologies.

We live in a time when our everyday products have just begun to become enchanted. Even things as seemingly mundane as coffee makers and toothbrushes can sing, glow, buzz and pose in ways that make us smile, gasp, get annoyed, or otherwise feel the temptation to relate to them with emotion, as if they are somehow alive.
IDSA’s Gianninoto Graduate Scholarship was originally established with a $25,000 contribution by the late Francesco Gianninoto, FIDSA, a US package designer who was a founder of the Package Design Council and president of Gianninoto Associates from 1932 to 1983. Two of his most famous designs were the Marlboro cigarette package (mid-1950s) and “Elsie Daisy,” the Borden Cow. Gianninoto was an honorary professor at Western Connecticut State University, where he taught communication through design.
