Reasons for APM
Reasons vs Actions
Despite the aforementioned reasons for APM public interest is declining (number of searches; newsgroup activity). Also in wide parts of the world the mere existence of APM is as good as unknown to the general public.
The reason for that development could be:
- In the first attempt to get things going the front of the technology dependence graph may have not been advanced enough. So the funds accredited where annexed by strongly unrelated technologies now dubbed "Nanotechnology" (See: The five kinds of Nanotechnology). The rapid increase of non atomically precise technology ("nanotechnology") was drawing all attention away. Mangled with a politoeconomical conflict. See history.
- A lack of a place where (1) the importance of AP Technology is explained, (2) exciting (but not so near term) motivational examples are given and at the same time (3) grounded technical aspects are shown.
(This wiki you are reading right here is an attempt to create such a place.)
