A tale of two cultures

Abstract:
The recent ‘discovery’ that material can be manipulated at the atomic scale must fill many scientists and engineers with despair. I know, I am one of them! Here we are, working away at a subject we have loved for the past 40 years and along comes a new generation all hyped up on the mission statements of the new nanotechnology revolution. What’s more, these ‘usurpers’ apply for and win large grants to buy the latest toys to shuffle around atoms and create pretty computer-generated pictures. (PDF)
