  • For nanotechnology to succeed at consumer level, scientists will have to manipulate individual atoms using nanoscopic machines called assemblers that can be programmed for this purpose.

  • The basic process is easy: we already have the feature? word to check for the existence of a feature, and any implementation-specific platform-specific extensions such as assemblers should be listed as features, so the same mechanism can be used; but for the common special case of providing different native-code versions of a subroutine definition, we standardise NATIVE, the word for invoking an assembler, to work thusly:

  • Nothing above that layer need be platform dependent but it still can be; HYDROGEN permits the provision of platform-specific interfaces, such as assemblers and low-level device driver access.

  • Perhaps the most important spur to perfection is transparency, the fact that in a lean system everyone—subcontractors, first-tier suppliers, system integrators often called assemblers, distributors, customers, employees—can see everything, and so it’s easy to discover better ways to create value.

  • Such "assemblers" have yet to be completely designed, let alone built, but cellular automata research indicates that the smallest possible assembler is probably quite simple and small.

    Ethical Technology

  • "assemblers," like Ivan Doig and Wendell Berry, who were concerned with reformation and social betterment, and the hip, like Ken Kesey, the deep spirits, like Terry Tempest Williams, and the laconic and hyperintelligent, like Tom McGuane.

  • The concepts of “public use” and “blight” ignore the real and fundamental dilemma raised by over-fragmented land — viz.: (a) land markets tend to do a poor job of re-assembling over-fragmented parcels but (b) assemblers use eminent domain to hog all of the post-assembly surplus, to the justified resentment of the dispossessed owners.

  • Surely, the availability of eminent domain to the “assemblers” weakens the bargaining power of the property owners and with it the likelihood of their getting a “reasonable share” of the post-assembly value.
