Chris Phoenix: Yes, there are a lot of practical issues to be solved (before a nanofactory will be built). To discuss all the issues would require a book; even to list them would require several pages. No one has pulled together this discussion, and anyone looking at only part of it will be able to find lots of [apparent] holes. But I have spent sixteen years thinking about this, and several years studying it intensively, and I think I have looked at most of the issues. Every one appears solvable. For most of them, the solution appears straightforward and does not impose much constraint on the rest of the system.
I am not saying that developing a nanofactory infrastructure will be easy. I'm saying that it could be done fairly quickly, given a well-funded well-focused effort--and that effort will be very worthwhile.
