glyph 21: nanotechnology ... knowledge exchange, critical discussion ... book, Engines of Creation, by K. Eric Drexler
The Foresight Institute's goal is to guide emerging technologies to improve the human condition. Foresight focuses its efforts upon nanotechnology, the coming ability to build materials and products with atomic precision, and upon systems that will enhance knowledge exchange and critical discussion, thus improving public and private policy decisions.
The Foresight Institute was founded on the work of K. Eric Drexler and his pioneering work, Engines of Creation: The Coming Era of Nanotechnology, 1986, a book very much reading in 2006. -leif smith
