Boomtown wannabes all want a piece of the new nanotech action

In Mike Nichols' 1967 movie classic, "The Graduate," Murray Hamilton, aka Mr. Robinson, advises the protagonist Benjamin (young Dustin Hoffman) on where his future ambitions ought to focus to ensure success. "Plastics," he says. If the movie came out today, the punch line might be "Nanotech, yo." Nanotechnology, which refers to both next-generation tool sets as well as manufactured infinitesimal materials finding their way into semiconductors, biotech items and manufactured materials development (including, yes, plastics), is set to go from zero to $30 billion in a short time (five years), and that's just counting nanoelectronics-oriented businesses.
