I haven't gotten the Nov. 26 Science yet so I want to thank Eliezer for breaking this electrifying news. Skeptics of Nanotechnology loved to point out that although we've been able to move individual atoms for several years we haven't been able to do chemistry at that scale, well now we can. Eliezer, I'm starting to think that if you want AI to arrive before Nanotechnology you're really going to have to move into high gear.
