Bits and Atoms

Abstract:
Richard Jones: I recently made a post about the importance of moving the focus of radical nanotechnology away from the question of how artefacts are to be made, and towards a deeper consideration of how they will function. I concluded with the provocative slogan "Matter is not digital." My provocation has been rewarded with detailed attempts to rebut my argument from both Chris Peterson, VP of the Foresight Institute, and Chris Phoenix of the Center for Responsible Nanotechnology. Here’s my response to some of the issues they raise.
