Itís about damn time: Medvedev bans nanodemocracy

Abstract:
Russia's modernization drive is all about nanotechnology.

For the time being, let's leave that statement alone. Believe me, asking "why?" or "seriously?" won't really get you a good answer as to why nanotech is Russia's deus ex machina.

Many Russia observers have asked another, still more important question: can you really have a modern economy based on the fruits of intellectual labor without political freedom? Can you have the medium necessary to foster innovation ó or nanotechnology ó without democracy?
