New nanotech book by Josh Hall available on Amazon

It's not available until May 6, but on Amazon you can preorder a copy of Nanofuture: What's Next for Nanotechnology by J. Storrs Hall, Ph.D. From the foreword by Eric Drexler: "Reaching a solid understanding of new technology–the understanding necessary to judge its effects–is an intellectual adventure. I could not wish you any better guide than Josh Hall. Before the term 'nanotechnology' had reached a tenth of its current popularity, he had already formed the first worldwide Internet discussion group and led the discussion for a decade. He has done research and development in nanotechnology since the early days, with multiple inventions and discoveries to his credit…You'll get the whole story here." The price is right too: only $18.48.

    Your attitude illustrates one of the reasons why so many people around the world despise Americans. They see us as having a sense of entitlement ñ we want what we want, we want it now, and we want it for free, ìregardless of the morality behind it.î

    How would you like it if nobody was willing to pay for your labors? What would you do for a living then?

    Itís way past time for us to stop behaving like bad-mannered children, and start taking responsibility for our actions.

    I've visited many countries, including Australia, New Zealand, Thailand, Japan, and China – and I can tell you right now, the reason why Americans are hated so much is because of their attitude towards Intellectual Property, Capitalism, and strict foreign policies. The fact that the U.S. has decided to becomes the global police of the world isn't working in its favor, either.

    Also, Americans are considered to be the world's gluttons in both food and energy consumption, which is another reason why they are despised to much.

    Considering, Americans are obsessed with money and capitalism, I don't see how your comment pertains to me; I am the antithesis of ALL of that.

    The money system is going to be destroyed, and no one can stop it; the gears of change are turning for the better. I know many people, including yourself, probably won't be able to accept this change, but it's going to happen whether you like it or not.

    Editor's feedback for Nanodot users

    This editor considers discussions that enable the violation of property rights, particularly involving the Foresight Institute or the Institute of Molecular Manufacturing, or people affiliated with those institutions an abuse of the Nanodot system. Discussions involving such abuses will stand a significant risk of being deleted. The same policy would be applied to discussions promoting physical harm to specific individuals (since one of the primary points of advanced medical nanotechnology is to extend the quality and length of human lives).

    Nanodot users who promote such actions on an ongoing basis will be deleted from the user database. Some of the reasons Nanodot was established include promoting the positive benefits that nanotechnology will allow and dealing with any risks its development may entail in a constructive way. People who disagree with those precepts are encouraged to go elsewhere.
