I recently received an E-mail from the Foresight Institute complaining about a nanotechnology report recently released by the state of California called "Nanoscience and Nanotechnology: Opportunities and Challenges in California." The Foresight Institute, started by nanotech theorist Eric Drexler, asserts that the future of nanotechnology will be found in what it calls "molecular manufacturing" - a bottom-up approach to nanotech in which very many, very small nanomachines build materials and devices one atom or molecule at a time.
