|The Scientific American Controversy over Nanotechnology|
by Jeremy at 11:21 pm EST, Nov 26, 2001
In the September issue of Scientific American, a number of articles cast doubt on certain aspects of nanotechnological building blocks promoted by the Institute for Molecular Manufacturing and the Foresight Institute. The organizations have responded with specific rebuttals to these articles and pointers to the previous literature on the subject.
Worth a look. I wonder which side of the debate Bill Joy supports ... if he supports the SciAm view, then is GNR a false threat?

The reply from the Institute for Molecular Manufacturing and the Foresight Institute to the september issue of Sciam. It was an interesting issue, where articles for and against Nanotech were side by side. In my eyes, Nanotech is completely possible, and there is simply no grounding in anyone saying that it couldn't happen. I suppose Sciam was just trying to stay neutral though...anyway, check it..
There is a redundant post from Decius not displayed in this view.
