So long as you don't make money off posting pictures, who cares?


That's exciting news. The field of nanotechnology appears to be making consist progress.

Long time no see, Chris! Been busy?

Chris Phoenix, CRN

Yes, working on several non-nano things.

If/when I next take a serious technical look at nano-these-days, one of the first questions to ask is: what is the expected performance and controllability of modern DNA-based nanodevices?

The purpose, of course, would be to decide whether DNA is potentially the basis for a general-purpose manufacturing technology. I'm inclined to doubt it, though I haven't run the numbers. I expect DNA to attract a major portion of the available brainpower working on molecular manufacturing... if my guess is right, then recent DNA advances could actually delay general-purpose manufacturing by a few years.



If you try to build a rocket from dna-nanomanufacturing, your a long ways off; if you try to bootstrap yourself to a better nanomanufacturing system, then I think dna-nanotech pathway can be worth doing;


Yea, Mr Phoenix, maybe if people would think scientifically, we wouldn't have the problems we have;
