I’m presently reading Eric Drexler’s famous book “Engines of Creation”, which discusses nanotechnology and how its development will undoubtably change our world and our society in dramatic and largely unpredictable ways.
As a fan of nanotechnology, it’s always interesting to learn more about it and ponder how it might affect the world around me. What’s particularly noteworthy about this book is that it was written in 1986– almost two decades ago– and is still considered by many to be not only the seminal work on the subject, but a good overview of the science. Considering how much the world of technology has changed in the last twenty years, that’s a fair accomplishment.
Amazing what they can do these days. And what they might be able to do tomorrow.
