Opposite Sides of the Atlantic Deliver Alternative Views of Nanotech's Development

Abstract:
This week we get two very different perspectives on the state of nanotechnology and its development.

On the one hand, we have the somewhat jaundiced view frim the UK-based New Scientist, which confesses to a fair amount of skepticism to just the mere idea of nanotechnology but wonders why the UK has seemingly dropped off the nanotech map.

On the other hand, we have the US-based Industry Week that promises that whatever regulatory problems we see now are merely growing pains in the manifest destiny of nanotech's ultimate success.

The somewhat more pessimistic Old-World view comes from Roger Highfield, the New Scientist Editor who penned the publication's blog piece. He references the travails of UK-based quantum manufacturer Nanoco as evidence of the lack of emphasis on nanotech's development in the UK.
