A skeptical view of nanotechnology

from the reacting-to-nanohype dept.
For a skeptical view of the potential benefits of nanotechnology, try this editorial ("Itty bitty miracles", by Jared Kendall, 12 September 2001) from The Advocate in Baton Rouge, Louisiana: "Every decade or so, a new scientific field is hailed as the answer to all our problems. Usually, such claims turn out to be slightly exaggerated. Such is surely to be the case with nanotechnology, a large field of study being built around the really, really small. That isn't to say that nanotechnology won't change our lives. Heck, it already has. It's just that nanotech won't solve all our problems. Technology is never as powerful as its potential."
