Arthur Kantrowitz, 1913-2008, Foresight Advisor

Abstract:
It is with great sadness that we report the death of Prof. Arthur Kantrowitz, a founding Advisor of Foresight Institute and an early supporter of molecular nanotechnology concepts when they were first developed at MIT in the late 1970s by then-student K. Eric Drexler.

Arthur was an amazingly innovative scientist and technologist, as described in his Wikipedia entry, which is worth reading. The fact forums described in Engines of Creation were an extension of Arthur's Science Court concept.
