Quote of the day

At an April (2003) conference sponsored by the National Nanotechnology Initiative, Mihail Roco, the nanotech guru at the National Science Foundation, noted, "Developments in nanotechnology are going much faster than expected; in fact, development time is less than half that we expected." Roco also flatly declared, "If a company does not enter nanotechnology now - in five years it will be too late - it will be out of business." (RR: my emphasis)

From The Smaller the Better The limitless promise of nanotechnology, and the growing peril of a moratorium. Ronald Bailey, December 2003
