My favorite quote of Smalley's:

    [...]while our future in the real world will be challenging and
    there are real risks, there will be no such monster as the
    self-replicating mechanical nanobot of your dreams.

I suppose the fact that the world is already filled to capacity with
them doesn't prove that they're possible, eh?
