Philp K. Dick: What a frackin' genius

I was re-reading some Philip K. Dick short stories in anticipation of the upcoming A Scanner Darkly movie and amused by the story Autofac. Written in 1955, it tells the tale of automated factories that, when faced with the possibility of being destroyed, shot tiny microscopic robots to build more factories.

1955. Dangers of nanotech.
