Recent highlights and discussions of APM concepts

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, Robin Hanson, associate professor of economics at George Mason and a well-known name to many in the broader Foresight community, has been posting his critiques of various aspects of Radical Abundance, leading to some response and conversation that Drexler has featured on his blog site metamodern.com.
