My new book, Radical Abundance, is now (at last!) nearing release. It reframes prospects for atomically precise manufacturing (APM), exploring timeless physical principles, surprising progress, and potential applications to global challenges that include economic development and climate change. Radical Abundance also looks back on the history of ideas that has shaped today’s perceptions of APM. Much of this history predates the rise of the web, however, and several key publications have been unavailable and hence effectively invisible.
To help fill this gap, I am posting PDFs of some of these lost publications. Several had a large impact, while others give an indication of how the world reacted as ideas diffused and evolved. To the best of my knowledge, this is the first time that these publications have been available online. If anyone wants to post a mirror to ensure that they stay available, I won’t complain.
