Choose Your Future

Mike Treder: CRN sometimes is accused of overstating the beneficial possibilities of advanced nanotechnology -- hyping what Garreau calles the "heaven" scenario. Other critics, of course, say CRN focuses too much on the dangers of molecular manufacturing -- emphasizing the "hell" scenario.

In reality, we expect something in-between to occur, perhaps along the lines of the "prevail" scenario. But even that won't be easy. Unless we start soon, our future may be chosen for us through our inaction.
