New Nanotech EBook (WOWIO)
Thanks to Deena (SoD) for mentioning WOWIO, a source of free e-books on a variety of topics. WOWIO offers many books as PDFs, which work on a variety of devices from computers to PDAs. Many of the books included in WOWIO come from major publishers, with Oxford University Press as one major contributor. WOWIO makes copyrighted books available for download with registration, but free of charge, both through partnerships and as a publisher in their own right.
One title they are currently highlighting is from Eric Drexler, who might be familiar as the co-author (with Marvin Minsky) of Engines of Creation, in addition to Nanosystems and Unbounding the Future: The Nanotechnology Revolution. WOWIO has published a 20th anniversary edition of Engines of Creation with new material included.

Thanks for the WOWIO info. I just rushed over there and became a member.
I am becoming more and more fascinated with the advances in nanotechnology, so thanks for the Nanotech reference also.
