Drexler speaks! – Or at least writes!
In this week's issue of the magazine, I wrote a story about some of the hype over nanotechnology–particularly estimates of how big of a market various nanoproducts might someday have. But it's hard to talk about nanotech without mentioning the guy who invented the term: Eric Drexler, author of the 1986 book Engines of Creation. In researching my article, I had a fascinating E-mail chat with Drexler. Here is some of that exchange:
