Scott E. Rickert: Times are tough all over. Banks, carmakers, retailers -- they're all taking body blows in this economy. And everyone in my business knows a nanotechnology company or two that's struggling. Still, it was a punch in the stomach when I read six news stories in one afternoon about seemingly healthy nano-companies being suddenly in trouble. Deep trouble. Chapter 11, Chapter 7, delistings, layoffs, locked doors.
Some media pundits were quick to announce the death of nanotechnology. And there were shock waves that rolled through the industry.
But these are companies whose technology and leadership I know. The sound bites weren't enough. Is it any wonder I wanted to get to the bottom of the story?
