KP's Khosla Pulls No Punches, Slams Plans for Nanosys IPO

Vinod Khosla, one of the industry's most respected technology investors, has warned of an impending nanotechnology "bubble" and criticized plans by venture-backed Nanosys Inc. to become the first publicly traded nanotech company. Khosla, a general partner at Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers, made the comments at the MIT/Stanford/UC Berkeley Nanotechnology Forum at Stanford University on May 27. "It's a shame [Nanosys is] going public because I don't think they are in a position to be predictable enough," he said. (Editor's note - read Nanosys: To IPO or Not to IPO?
