Bottom Up World For Free

The book that put nanotechnology on the map, K. Eric Drexler's The Engines Of Creation, is now available online for free.

Scary that it's now 20 years old...

Following links I see that Drexler is now working with Nanorex, a company developing software for modelling nanoscale engineering. It'll be interesting to take a look at the software when it comes out later this summer.

(I can happily predict various SF writers getting a whole new cat hoovering toy.)
