Defining Nanotechnology

Abstract:
Definitions of nanotechnology are getting broader all the time. A draft definition recently crossed our desks, something on the order of "The study of things too small to see." This is of course far too broad, and does not indicate what is special about nanotechnology.

But what, exactly, is special about nanotechnology? What collective observation -- let alone formal definition -- can be made about a loose association of fields as diverse as fabricating computer chips, making movies of proteins in action, and analyzing the performance of future nanofactories?
