One of the foremost experts on nanotechnology will address one of the largest gatherings of futurologists at Worldfuture 2003, the World Future Society’s 2003 annual meeting.

K. Eric Drexler, the founder and chairman of the Foresight Institute, has been added to the speakers list for the gathering, held next July in San Francisco, California.

Drexler is the author of Engines of Creation, which introduced nanotechnology to a general audience. He started the Foresight Institute to prepare society for the changes nanotechnology could bring, many of which he outlined in his book.
