Patti Glaza: I'm sure I wasn't the only person attending a recent conference in California who saw the irony in Eric Drexler giving the plenary talk in place of the International Society of Optical Engineering's 2005 Visionary Award winner, Richard Smalley.

Needing to find a replacement quickly, conference organizers selected Drexler to lead off their nano session.
