Unbounding the Future: the Nanotechnology Revolution
by E. Drexler, C. Peterson, G. Pergamit
Publisher: William Morrow and Co. 1991
Number of pages: 166
This book delivers a rich array of micro-scenarios of nanotechnology at work, some thrilling, some terrifying, all compelling. Probably none represent exactly what will happen, but in aggregate they give a deep sense of the kind of thing that will happen. Strategies of how to stay ahead of the process are proposed, but the ultimate responsibility for the wholesome use and development of nanotechnology falls on every person aware of it. That now includes you.
