Glenn Reynolds on the nanomaterials "study"

In a strategy I've criticized as shortsighted, the nanotechnology industry, scared of backlash from Michael Crichtonesque scenarios involving molecular robots, has been pooh-poohing the possibility of advanced nanotechnology and stressing lower-tech nanomaterials. The payoff? Articles like this one from the Washington Post: Nanotechnology Linked to Organ Damage -- Study. The study isn't about genuine molecular nanotechnology, but about nanomaterials of the sort that industry boosters would prefer the press to focus on. Oops. (still more on earlier article)
