Where are the NanoMarketers?

Alan B. Shalleck: Last month I wrote about the paucity of the promised blockbuster nanotechnology products in 2005. I clearly touched a raw nerve. What a spectrum of response. I’ve received letters and email from many saying “right on” and from the others asking, “Why are you knocking the industry?” (I wasn’t. I was trying to light a fire.) A few listed all the nanoproducts they could find (an exciting but not very meaningfully economic group) and said I had asked the wrong question. Funny … the VC’s and other major investors were noticeably silent while some of the nanomanagement I spoke to reluctantly admitted that they hadn’t done their jobs as well as they should have. I believe such discussion is very healthy for the nanoindustry so I’m going to go a step further this month.
