Last week, a small but impassioned band of forward thinkers gathered in Tucson, Arizona for the first conference of the Center for Responsible Nanotechnology. The Internet pioneers spent 20 years rejecting the idea of government regulation. But CRN's two founders and chief researchers, Chris Phoenix and Mike Treder, have been convinced for a decade that the potential of nanotechnology - by which they mean molecular manufacturing - is too dangerous powerful not to plan ahead.
The week produced more questions than answers about what the world might look like if all of us had nanofactories in our homes.
Are humans going to be in charge or AIs, after humans have been successful at transferring themselves into an artificial substrate?
Will we need to work? If we don't, will we be retired - or unemployed? ("I've asked that for years," says Phoenix.)
