Drexlerian dreams and other politics of science

Fascinating Wired article on Eric Drexler and the hectic politics of science.

For all-things-nano, albeit from a rather uncritical perspective, check out Howard Lovy's nanobot. Related is Lawrence Lessig on Stamping Out Good (Nano)Science.

For a more critical take (i.e. critical of science as well as politics) take a look at work by Daniel Greenberg, as well as Bruno Latour's Politics of Nature: How to bring the sciences into democracy or classic social and cultural studies by Sharon Traweek and Karin Knorr Cetina. And for the more philosophically minded, you can't beat Isabelle Stengers.
