Drexlerian nanotech
#13
Let me clarify, then. By "drexlerian nanotech" I mean not things derived from Drexler's ideas, but those ideas themselves. Which, as I understand it, is exactly the individual nanoscale robots operating independently that you mentioned, often in an uncontrolled environment. However, my knowledge of his work comes entirely from Engines of Creation, so I suspect that my idea of it is quite incomplete. Anyway, you must understand that I wholeheartedly agree with the idea of an OA nanofab, and I am simply pointing out that Drexler's original work, and by extension most depictions of nanotech, do not incorporate these ideas.
Also,
Quote:(note that I don't think Grey goo as originally conceived makes sense, a universal easter is orders of magnitude more complicated than a single self replicating breed. Drexler also discussed this after his original publication).
Big Grin

My lifelong goal: To add "near" to my "baseline" classification.

Lucid dreaming: Because who says baseline computronium can't run virches?
