Hype, Part 1 - Who has the hype?

Abstract:
Imagine the possibilities. Materials with 10 times the strength of steel and only a small fraction of the weight. Shrinking all the information housed at the Library of Congress into a device the size of a sugar cube. Or detecting cancerous tumors when they are only a few cells in size.

That's former President Bill Clinton, in a speech given at Caltech a few years ago when he called for the creation of a U.S. National Nanotechnology Initiative.
