With today's bulk technology, engineers make patterns on silicon chips by
throwing atoms and photons at them, but the patterns remain flat and molecular-
scale flaws are unavoidable. With assemblers, however, engineers will build
circuits in ...
Like genes, ideas split, combine, and take multiple forms (genes can be
transcribed from DNA to RNA and back again; ideas can be translated from
