Will magic technology be revolutionary?

Abstract:
Chris Phoenix: In yesterday's post about nanofactories, I described a system that would use pre-built nanoblocks to build products extremely quickly--mere seconds from downloading the blueprint to having the finished product appear.

I was thinking about the effect this would have in the average home. Suddenly, several threads of thought came together (including Jamais's recent column on the apparent boredom with abundance), and I realized that the average user might not use it very much!
