Keeping Up "The Weird Fight"

I'm worried about the future of nanotechnology. Worried enough, in fact, that where just a few weeks ago I was wondering if I should invest in the field, now I'm relieved that I don't own any nanotechnology stocks. This worry doesn't come from any overinflated fears regarding the dangers of nanotechnology. As readers of this column know, I've long regarded most nanotechnology-related fears as overblown. Nor am I worried about technological progress, which actually seems to be advancing faster than even I expected. No, my fear is that the nanotechnology industry is setting itself up for a political disaster that will have serious economic ramifications.
