    In December I wrote, re Drexler:

    "What is more interesting is to think through just why teh NNI is going after him now - the stable door is well open so what is the NNI's purpose so late in the game . He is clearly perceived as a major threat by them, but why?"

    I think I know now....he is siding with those who want to regulate nanotech as it has some nasty side effects, and the industry doesn't like that.

    memetically I guess its now the battle in people's heads fo comepting views on nano - will we get Frankenfood or Saviour Machine I wonder?
