Nano Babel

More later, but for now what's interesting to me about the Slashdot discussion of today's New York Times piece is the seamless mixture opinions on the chemicals industry, which produces very real nanosized particles, and "self-replicating nanobots," which have yet to be invented. It shows that nanotech still needs to be properly defined before any kind of meaningful argument can happen. Otherwise, you have two "sides" engaged in parallel monologues.
