>They've come out with a special double issue with "21 Ideas for the 21st
>It is excellent.
>One of the ideas discussed is nanotechnology, intelligently pointing out
>that matter will become software. Eric Drexler and Foresight are duly and
>favourably mentioned. Ellenbogen did a fine job explaining the crux of the
>matter... and some of its potential.
>The other 20 'ideas' are more than worth reading too, especially if you
>consider that BW had the creative sense to take a non-linear,
>non-extrapollating approach to the whole problem of divining our possible
>futures. Smart. Great job.
