"If you listen to a lot of the VCs, they'll say (nanotechnology) is still a science project. A lot of them say it's 10 years in the future. They're nuts. It's not 10 years."
-- Steven Currall, Rice University, quoted by The Associated Press

"We don't know if this is interesting new physics or some stupid mistake. In learning about quantum computing, we're at the forefront of fundamental physics."
-- William D. Phillips, National Institute of Standards & Technology, quoted in BusinessWeek

"I am not going to go into a harangue – as tempted as I am -- against some lazy journalists (some of my best friends are…), Drexlarians, or former Dotcomers looking for work in the nanoworld. Instead, much like my points on playing the market for nano-stocks, I just ask you to use caution and go to a reliable source."
-- F. Mark Modzelewski, NanoBusiness Alliance, in an e-mail newsletter
