Imagine, billions of small machines are floating in your blood. The Coming Era of Nanotechnology by K. This will be like the stone age for our heirs in the Nano Age.

Topics covered include nanotechnology’s relationship to scientific knowledge, the evolution of ideas, artificial intelligencehuman life span, limits to growth, healing the environment, prevention of technological abuse, space development, and the need for new social technologies-such as hypertext publishing and fact forums-to help us deal with rapid technological change. There is only sound speculation, written by someone who knows rric what he is talking about.
