Federal nanotech confusion spreads to California

A report released today in Sacramento indicates that U.S. federal confusion over nanotechnology's original goal has spread to the state of California, where the concept originated. The report, "Nanoscience and Nanotechnology: Opportunities and Challenges in California," was released today at a meeting of the state's Joint Committee on "Preparing California for the 21st Century." Christine Peterson, president of the California-based Foresight Institute, addressed the Committee meeting: "The original goal for nanotechnology - systems of molecular machines, building cleanly with atom-by-atom precision, as described by Nobel physicist Richard Feynman - is entirely absent from the report.
