Entering the Nano-Age?
Last week, I wrote about the EPA Science Advisory Board meeting where nanotechnology was discussed. I learned a lot of interesting things there, but one of the things that I learned is that, even for people like me who try to keep up, the pace of nanotechnology research is moving much too fast to catch everything. One of the documents distributed at that meeting was a supplement to the President's 2004 budget request, entitled National Nanotechnology Initiative: Research and Development Supporting the Next Industrial Revolution. I expected it to be the usual bureaucratic pap, but in fact, it turned out to contain a lot of actual useful information, including reports of several nanotechnology developments that I had missed.
