I am speaking on nanotechnology at a free event at Stanford this Wednesday evening.

The Nanocentury: Bringing Digital Control to the Physical World. Throughout human history, our species has worked to control the matter surrounding us — building larger and larger, smaller and smaller, more and more precise. The payoffs from these efforts are starting to accelerate, as we move toward the ability to build physical objects with atomic precision, just as we program information with bit-level precision. What will this mean for our bodies, our minds, our families, our nations, our culture, our planet? There’s good news and bad news, but one thing’s clear — we are in for a wild ride!

Hope to see you there!  (Sadly, I don’t think they are webcasting or video recording.) —Christine Peterson
