Dry Nano, Wet Nano

Chris Phoenix, CRN's Director of Research, writes: I've recently been talking with a scientist who asserts that I alienate scientists by focusing on diamond-based "dry" nanotech to the exclusion of biochemical-based "wet" nanotech. This indicates a misunderstanding that needs to be cleared up. We do not think that dry nanotech is the only kind that matters. However, it is the most powerful kind that has been specified to date. As such, until someone either shows why it can't work, or proposes a more powerful technology, this is the one we use as a benchmark.
