The Experts Debate How Big Nascent Nanotech Industry Will Become
The local nanotech industry is small in more than one way.
And even the attitude of those who have successfully built and sold nanotech startups, such as Joel Martin, now of San Diego's Forward Ventures, casts a local shadow on the industry.
First, there is a disagreement about whether it is an industry or technology.
Martin notes that the biotech industry grew from a term for classifying a set of tools — essentially manipulating DNA. But he's not sure the term nanotech can make the jump because of its broader uses.
