Foresight FAQ about Molecular Nanotechnology (see "1. What is molecular manufacturing?")

Nanomedicine FAQ - by Robert A. Freitas Jr.

Unbounding the Future: the Nanotechnology Revolution - Glossary.

Engines of Creation: The Coming Era of Nanotechnology - Glossary.

5-Minute Nanosystems - a very brief summary of the contents of Eric Drexler's foundational work on molecular nanotechnology, Nanosystems: Molecular Machinery, Manufacturing, and Computation.

Self replication and nanotechnology - Self replication is an effective route to truly low cost manufacturing.

Bootstrapping a Nanofactory: From Fabricator to Finished Products - "To build a nanofactory, you need to start with a working fabricator, a nanoscale device that can combine individual molecules into useful shapes. A fabricator could build a very small nanofactory, which could build another one twice as big, and so on."

Omission in the 21st Century Nanotechnology Research and Development Act
Among a rapidly growing group of nano-commentators, Nanotechnology Now is concerned that the 21st Century Nanotechnology Research and Development Act calls for a one-time study of the feasibility of "molecular self-assembly," and omits any possibility of studying the feasibility of molecular manufacturing. Failure to investigate both the promise and the peril of molecular manufacturing may well lead to a future where we find ourselves taken by surprise, to our collective detriment.
