Small Times CEO to nanotech industry: Compartmentalize

Small Times CEO Patti Glaza writes: “The nanotechnology industry needs to be able to compartmentalize itself, so that if and when the first widespread negative impact of nanotechnology is felt, people only demand the end to the harmful (or perceived harmful) applications and not demand the end of beneficial forms of nanotechnology too.” Indeed. Companies may want to think twice before putting “nano” in their name, for instance. Some firms choose not to use the term nanotechnology at all — it has upsides, but at least one or two potential downsides as well.
