The Wall Street Journal on Feynman, Drexler, History, and the Future

Abstract:
Eric Drexler: The Wall Street Journal published an article yesterday, "Feynman and the Futurists", about Feynman's ideas, mine, how the nanotechnology bandwagon got rolling, and how the band got thrown off the wagon and then, out of the shadows, the NRC report and why the U.S. government should implement the NRC's recommendations.


The author, Adam Keiper, is editor of The New Atlantis and a fellow at the Ethics and Public Policy Center. Toward the end of the article, he notes that the National Research Council has recommended initiating Federal research directed toward molecular manufacturing (the subject of my previous post) and laments that none of the federal nanotechnology R&D funding has gone toward "the basic exploratory experiments that the National Research Council called for in 2006".
