Nanotechnology and Damage

By Glenn Harlan Reynolds. As regular readers of this column know, I've been rather critical of the nanotechnology industry's recent public relations strategies. In short -- scared that advanced nanotechnology might spook the public with fears of Michael Crichtonesque scenarios of death and destruction -- the industry has been pooh-poohing not those scary scenarios, but the very possibility of advanced nanotechnology itself. I suppose they figure that if they can convince people that advanced nanotechnology is impossible, they can convince people that there's nothing to worry about.
