Non-technical Sites

NanoTechnology Magazine"The Technology of the 21st Century"
"Featuring the Stunning Industrial Possibilities of Mastering Atomic Precision Construction, or "Building with Individual Atoms"
This inevitable consequence of continued advancement in the fields of chip manufacture, biology and chemistry will open the era of self-replicating consumer goods, super-health, super-economy and inventions impossible to fabricate with first wave industrialization. The steps toward manipulating matter on such a fine scale and a glimpse of a very different world are presented by pioneering scientists in the field. Follow monthly the discoveries and evolution of a technology sure to change the human experience and dominate the 21st. Century."

On this site you will find a good and very readable overview of what nanotech's about and what it can deliver.  Some nice graphics too.

more Indepth info

Ralph Merkle's nanotechnology page gives an excellent introduction to key ideas and has annotated links to several dozen other web pages devoted to nanotechnology and  related subjects.

Foresight Institute Foresight Institute A nonprofit educational organization formed to promote nanotechnology.  Their goal is to guide emerging technologies to improve the human condition. Foresight focuses its efforts upon nanotechnology, the coming ability to build materials and products with atomic precision, and upon systems that will enhance knowledge exchange and critical discussion.  Eric Drexler is chairman.

Institute of Atomic Scale EngineeringInstitute of Atomic Scale Engineering - devoted to the promotion and development of Molecular Nanotechnology as clarified, in part, by Dr. K. Eric Drexler. A technology that will induce the most profound changes in the ways of the world.  Includes some nifty on-line articles by Forrest Bishop.  Check out their external linklinks page too

website Soft Machines: nanotechnology and life by Richard A.L. Jones - a book about nanotechnology, that explains why things behave differently at the nanoscale to the way they behave at familiar human scales, and why this means that nanotechnology may be more like biology than conventional engineering. This website contains The Soft Machines weblog, general information about nanotechnology, links to other articles and reports written by Richard Jones, and links to other reports and websites.
