Now we all can assist UK nanotechnology project

We've written before about the nanotechnology-based matter compiler project in the U.K, wishing we could participate.

Richard Jones writes that now, we can:

You may be interested to hear (and I'm hoping you might post about it on your blog) that we've now got a blog running associated with the "Software Control of Matter" sandpit. The hope is that readers around the world might contribute their own thoughts on the problem, whether that's how one might achieve this goal, what one might do with the materials and devices that it would provide, and thoughts on the broader social and ethical implications; when the sandpit gets going next Monday the idea is to feed these thoughts into the process.

The blog is to be found at
