      Request for forum "folders":
      • 1 APM specific basics (Basics)
      • 2 far term productive nanosystems (Far Goal)
      • 3 far term products (Applications)
      • 4 near term path (Path)
      • 5 speculative economical and ecological consequences (Impacts)
      • 6 off-topic misc (Misc)
      Currently the folder "Impacts and Applications" mixes up two of them.

      I guess threads can't be relocated in retrospect (by admin / thread starter) - can they?
    • I can certainly create those folders and move existing threads to them, but it has been found by others (and my own observations) that it is actually counterproductive to create folders too soon in the life of a forum. As categories become evident threads may be created.

      I happen to think discussion of applications cannot occur without also their impacts being brought up even when an author of a post tries to avoid it, and vice versa.

      Which of the existing threads do you feel should be placed into the folders you have proposed?

      I think this was rather easy to decide/classify.

      I've based those categories on the 200+ slides I've made that I've mentioned in the "Youtube+APM" thread - so I do have put quite some thought in them.
      But you're right - its unclear how posters will behave.
