Will Nanotechnology Produce a SciTech Revolution?
What will it really be like when exponential general-purpose molecular manufacturing is achieved?
Will it result in an "explosion" of powerful new products? Will it bring a new Industrial Revolution "overnight" to previously undeveloped areas? Will it "change everything"?
Or might it perhaps be a more "ho-hum" evolutionary development, significant but not especially transformative?
We think the former is more likely than the latter, and that people everywhere would be wise to evaluate the potential for—and the implications of—dramatic change in the fairly near future. That's why we urge government bodies, industry groups, and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) to adopt CRN's Thirty Essential Nanotechnology Studies as a syllabus to begin exploring numerous issues that could seriously affect them.
