Here are some provocative new essays on molecular assembly, the opportunities and dangers, by several knowledgeable nano-theorists. Hat tip The Speculist.

Here are links to a set of earlier essays on similar and complementary topics:

Danger and opportunity, in one small package. There is no such thing as life without risk, if we are lucky there never will be. One does tend to wonder what the singularity version of the afterlife would be, however. Another time, perhaps.
