I have read some of Drexler's stuff and I think nanotech is a wonderful
idea. However, it is a very new technology and has a long way to go
before it delivers the awesome applications that have been
promised. In the time between now and the day when
nanotech' immortalizes us, frees us from money, and provides new
earth-like planets, you and I could be long dead. Meantime, we need more
practical solutions that will bridge the gaping hole that lies
between the present reality and the dream of nanotechnology.

I suggest you read again the paragraph entitled "Research" in the
"Hello Nanotechnology, Bye Bye money" at the >Hx site.
