The release of Eric Drexler’s new book Radical Abundance has sparked a resurgence of discussion about nanotechnology and the global future. Last month, Nanowerk reprinted Drexler’s blog write-up entitled The Physical Basis of High-Throughput Atomically Precise Manufacturing, a reader-friendly overview highlighting parallels between molecular manufacturing and conventional chemistry and manufacturing. Over the last couple months, [...]

I am speaking on nanotechnology at a free event at Stanford this Wednesday evening. The Nanocentury: Bringing Digital Control to the Physical World. Throughout human history, our species has worked to control the matter surrounding us — building larger and larger, smaller and smaller, more and more precise. The payoffs from these efforts are starting [...]
