Article says nanotech needs products soon, or it

from the Nano-hype,-nano-whining dept.
An article on the Small Times website ("Nanotech headed for historyís dustbin unless it cuts the hype, panelists warn", by Matt Kellye, 5 February 2002) recaps comments made during an investment forum at Harvard Business School by a four-member panel who make the dubious assertion that "the fledgling sector needs to start creating real devices to solve existing problems . . . Otherwise, nanotech could follow artificial intelligence or other technology fads that once flashed into the public mind, only to end up as niche ideas that never went mainstream." The article also described what seems to be a lot of impatient hand-wringing over a lack of perceived applications and short-term returns for nanotechnology investment.
