He has a Nobel, a company and Washington’s ear

Sometime after his opening speech but before the close of the National Nanotechnology Initiative’s 2002 regional symposium in Houston, Richard Smalley managed to sequester one of the federal government’s highest-ranking officials for a tête-à-tête in his campus office. Smalley’s goal: to get a read on Phil Bond, an under secretary for the Department of Commerce and its quarterback for commercializing technology. Bond recently had begun promoting nanotechnology publicly as a means for expanding the national economy.
