Radical Abundance by K. Eric Drexler
A friend of mine just asked me if I finally read Drexler's "Radical Abundance", which reminded me that I didn't write anything about it... or anything else I've been reading recently. =P Yes, I read it, and I re-read it, and finished doing so a while back. And I'm a big fan!
K. Eric Drexler, who is for all intents and purposes the father of nanotechnology, is probably the most qualified person to explain what we've already accomplished in the field, what's to be expected, the obstacles, the misunderstandings, and why we're not where we could be yet. In this book he also does an amazing job in describing in a very straightforward and "none-fiction" way, what the future could look like if we did in fact realize the potentials of the field.
I'll probably read this again soon enough... huuuuuuge fan!
