No news is bad news

Business Week's Deal Flow says that the "'news coverage-to-actual VC dollars going to nanotech'" ratio is pretty out of whack," and that Lux Research is "the only research firm I know of dedicated to nanotech."

I'd say just the opposite is true. Nanotech research firms and premium reports are replicating like Starbucks franchises in any city's downtown, leaving nanotechnology journalism to the haphazard, surface coverage of mainstream publications.

Business Week and The Motley Fool have taken up the slack, but their coverage, by necessity, is devoted to nanotech primarily as stock ticker symbol.
