Got 'fac?

My friends at crnano.org, Mike Treder and Chris Phoenix, recently posed the question "No Replicators Until 2075?" Their ~260 words are the best explanation I've read regarding this issue.

Mike sums it up nicely "If too many people are convinced that we won't see these things for 50 or 100 years, it's almost certain that the world will be caught unaware, and then reactions to such a transformative and disruptive new technology could be chaotic and catastrophic. Much better that we start studying and preparing now, instead of putting it off."

In December 2006, Mike and Chris celebrated the four-year anniversary of CRN's founding. In that short time they have come a long way towards helping stakeholders understand the issues surrounding MM. I support their mission.
