Measuring 'hive' or marketing jive: Nanotools study greater than sum?
A recent market study that predicts 2004 should be a good year for nanotechnology toolmakers may not be as noteworthy as the motive behind the study, itself – discovering nanotech's "hive intelligence." To wrap your antennae around that buzzphrase, think of the small tech sector as an ant farm. Input some anonymous, thus possibly more frank, data about individual workers' strengths, weaknesses and relationships, and the entire industry moves up the intelligence food chain.
