Solving Spam

Abstract:
When your home or office includes a desktop nanofactory as a standard appliance, how easy will it be for hackers to steal (or buy) your machine's unique address and send instructions to produce unwanted physical products?! It could be something as "innocent" as a clever marketing ploy to get you to try a new product. Or it could be something as dangerous as a smart bomb designed to look like a toy or a new electronic gadget.

Will such things happen? It seems inevitable that someone, probably many someones, will try it. The real question is what kind of response will keep that new and potentially deadly problem under control -- will market solutions be sufficient, or will it require government involvement?
