HRH the Prince of Wales: Menace in the minutiae

I am well aware that promoting public debate about nanotechnology is an uncertain business. My first gentle attempt to draw the subject to wider attention resulted in "Prince fears grey goo nightmare" headlines. So, for the record, I have never used that expression and I do not believe that self-replicating robots, smaller than viruses, will one day multiply uncontrollably and devour our planet. Such beliefs should be left where they belong, in the realms of science fiction. (Here is the correct link to the RS&RAE study)
