|" 'Nanotech will be cleaner, we
won't invest in stupid companies. We'll only invest in good business
plans with big returns.' That whole philosophy always falls by the
wayside. ... You almost expect to give up and fall
into bad habits and fall into the way we've always done things. ... We don't have much time if anyone
wants to make anything different. ... You're really in the waning
years already of being able to set this on a different path. ... If anyone is going to do
it, it's right now. It's probably a lot of the people in this room.
It's going to be this connection between industry, government and
researchers who are going to be able to pull this off. So, right now is
the time to (ask) how are we're going to use nanotech most effectively
to really and truly change things and create a new age."
