CBS the New NanoNetwork?

CBS Sunday Morning’s David Pogue did a story on nanotechnology. The NanoMom called me to let me know the story was on (Thanks Mom). They didn’t introduce anything new to the folks who read NanoPudit. The was a very interesting VC guy who down played the grey goo angle and stated that medical nanorobots and biological machines were 50-100 years out. I think that some of that is science fiction and will remain so a lot longer than 100 years.

My favorite part was CBS used a comparison of Pogue’s height to the thickness of a nickel, to the size of a red blood cell to a nanometer. Much more nteresting and effective than the 1/1,000th the width of a human hair cliché.
