Wall Street Gang vs. Green Gang


I've been enjoying your blog for a while now, and it's really helped put what nanotechnology really is into perspective. I think you'd be interested in this article:

slashdot today linked to a Forbe's article that poo-poos the political (framed as the "green-gang") attempts at fear-mongering "nanotechnology" into regulation. Already, some groups are calling for moratoriums on all nanotechnology. I think this quote pretty much sums up the feel of the article, and I think you'd agree with it:

"Nanomaterials are such a broad category, and I'm convinced that some will be hazardous and some will be completely safe. So if you want to paint nanotechnology with a broad brush, it's just not going to work."

Hi, thanks. The article is by Josh Wolfe, who is not a journalist, but is an investment guru who has an interest in pumping up nanotech companies, especially the ones he promotes in his newsletter, published jointly with Forbes. That being said, I do agree with what he wrote. I've been writing much of the same thing for almost four years now.

So, Mr. Wolfe has taken our bait, and is making environmentalists out to be the Luddite whipping boys for his investment performance.

Thank you, Mr. Wolfe. Keep it coming. We sure hope your article gets a really wide distribution.
