Presuming there ARE any winners, of course. :) I think it's irresponsible to suggest that there isn't more than a slim chance that if and when a nanotech-AI is implemented, it won't simply disassemble us all for parts.

That's not a good enough reason to abort, IMO, but I think one has to concede that it could happen.
