India Daily runs disturbing military nanotech editorial
By a staff reporter at India Daily: "Fourth, the most dangerous Nano-application use for military purposes is the Nano-bomb that contain engineered self multiplying deadly viruses that can continue to wipe out a community, country or even a civilization."
Three causes for concern here: first, the errors in the article (e.g., viruses would be biotech, not nanotech); second, the possibility of over-reaction; and third, the real issues raised by military use of advanced nanotech in the longer term.
