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.
