Worldwatch Institute Finally Gets it Right

Abstract:
In Chapter 5, "Shrinking Science: An Introduction to Nanotechnology," the authors present a great summary of what nanotechnology is and how it will alter and improve nearly everything we do in technology-based commerce. These people really know their stuff and thus can--and do--explain it with complete simplicity and lack of mind-numbing obtuse pomposity. All you need to know is that a nanometer is a billionth of a meter; nanotechnology deals with particles smaller than 100 nanometers; and many materials when created at such minute sizes exhibit rare and wonderful characteristics not existing in their macro form. One day, nanotechnology will likely alter every process and material we work with.
