When Nanotech Was Popping

Abstract:
Here at Bits we make an effort to keep you abreast of the latest significant developments in nanotechnology. But the Bits archives would be woefully incomplete without an occasional look back, especially when the subject is probably the single funniest commentary ever written about nanotech.

I'm referring, for all you nano newbies, to "Nanometer-Scale Kitchen Appliances and the Physical Limits of Toastability," a send-up of the early nanotech visionaries published in 1997 in "The Best of Annals of Improbable Research" alongside such papers as "Taxonomy of Barney" and "The Effects of Peanut Butter on the Earth's Rotation."
