An Emtech Melange

...I wanted to give you the rundown on some interesting emtech developments since the last installment of New Tech Investor.

First off, my colleague Dr. Tim Harper who runs one of the world's most respected nanotech consulting firms, posted a "blast from the past," his 2002 Nanotechnology Opportunity Report. Ironically, it's a very important and relevant read seven years later, since the topics discussed then are finally being discussed in larger public forums. I'd also recommend checking out Tim'sTNTlog. He's also a very prolific tweeter; just type in his name at the Twitter search page.

Another important and more contemporary report "marks the completion of the first broad, multidisciplinary effort to explore how current laboratory techniques for atomically precise fabrication can be extended, step by step, toward increasingly advanced products and capabilities."

Productive Nanosystems: A Technology Roadmap is a very important report because of its breadth and depth. And don't be scared off by the URL; this report is featured on K. Eric Drexler's site but isn't a futuristic exploration of fantastical potentialities. It's hard science for the here and now.
