As exciting as nanotechnology is, one thing that always seems to get left out is where the nano-machines will get their power from. Microbatteries might be an answer someday, though they are a long way from useful now.

Ultimately, I don't think this will be the solution. I suspect instead that the convergence of biology and chemistry will provide machines that work like living cells. In fact, I think that in a very few years, it's going to be very difficult to decide what "living" really means. No doubt some folks will have some real moral issues with this, but that's not going to stop any of it from happening.

Everyone knows that debugging is twice as hard as writing a program in the first place. So if you're as clever as you can be when you write it, how will you ever debug it? (Brian Kernighan)
