Many people involved in this discussion seem to be living in some-sort of
surreal fantasy land where new technologies magically appear over night.
There are hundreds of companies working on nanotech, all at various
different levels of research and many sharing their individual knowledge. By
the time destructive nanotech is a real possibility, other forms of nanotech
will already be 'out there' making money in the real world. Progress, in
case you didn't know, is progressive!
