Nanoparticles, Nanodevices, Nanofactories

Chris Phoenix: An article by Jamais Cascio makes a good start at describing three levels of nanotechnology: nanoparticles, nanomachines, and nanofactories. Astute readers will note that the title of this blog entry replaces "nanomachines" with "nanodevices." I'll explain why later on.
