The Coming Atomic Age

Abstract:
A kind of nanotech network-in-exile -- left out in the cold when it comes to government or venture capital funding -- is making plans to fight back in the war for the public's hearts and minds.

This group of nanotech's early visionaries, led by Eric Drexler and the Foresight Institute think tank he founded, have been pushed to the margins of mainstream nanotech thought as commercial interests remake nanotech in their own image. So Drexler, whose seminal 1986 book, "Engines of Creation" first launched nanotech into mainstream public imagination, is fighting back with some new images of his own.
