Challenges & Opportunities: The Future of Nano & Bio Technologies
Center for Responsible Nanotechnology conference presentations in Tucson, AZ September 10 - 12, 2007

The Atkinson-Phoenix Nanotech Debate
William Illsey (Bill) Atkinson wrote a book, Nanocosm, about nanotechnology. In it he was quite critical of Eric Drexler's approach to nanotech, and of Drexler himself. Chris Phoenix (CRN) wrote a review of the book, quite critical of Bill's understanding of the topic.

Bill responded. This touched off an email discussion, presented here for your enjoyment and information. Bill's response and subsequent emails are included in this file. This is the unedited dialog, hot off the keyboard. Corrections, where necessary, have been clearly marked.

The Potential Dangers of MNT
A debate about the possible dangers associated with Molecular Nanotechnology.

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.
