Just Because It's Smaller Doesn't Make It Nanotechnology

Abstract:
Andrew Maynard is often the first stop for mainstream journalists when they need to cover the story of nanotech. This is no doubt due to Maynard's unique blend of scientific knowledge and his ability to communicate the science effectively to both the layman and his fellow scientist.

So when PBS decided to launch a new program as part of the Nova series entitled Making Stuff, hosted by New York Times technology columnist David Pogue, they must have been a little concerned that Maynard was less than enthusiastic about a clip from the program's coverage of bioengineered materials both in terms of its ethical and safety point of view, the latter of which is Maynard's bailiwick.
