I wrote this to the list on January 8 1996: 

I remember hearing speculation about femtomachines that operated at a scale of 10^-15m . The idea was to build things with strangelet quark structures. Unfortunately I don't see how this could work, objects would not be rigid, and you can't build machines with a liquid. There is little more I can say on 
that subject because unlike nanotechnology, building things on this scale would require a scientific breakthrough and they are inherently unpredictable.
