Growing Acceptance

Earlier this week, CNN posted an article titled, "Will nanotech save the world or is it mostly hype?" That sort of headline would seem to suggest a mostly skeptical treatment of the topic. But, lo and behold, the second paragraph of the article says: "While its benefits are still years away from reaching the public, scientists hope nanotechnology -- the manipulation of atoms as raw materials -- will eventually live up to the hype it's received for its potential to advance medicine, electronics and manufacturing." Not so skeptical after all. Perhaps the tide is shifting.
