Major Media Goes Nano

The Washington Post discusses:

The Fantastic Voyage,
Quantum Dots,
Nanotubes, and
Photo-Thermal Nanoshells.

You should read this because it is one of the most sophisticated treatments of nanotechnology I have seen by a major news publication. This tied with the CBS
story reported below shows me that major media is starting to understand nanotechnology and are no longer reporting grey goo and self replicating monsters (or even using the human hair analogy). Are investors starting to understand nanotechnology as well. Typically people with some skin in the game are far ahead of the newsies but I still see the only big bucks coming from VC’s. This is probably evidence that investor understand the risks and the rewards of nanotechnology and have determined that the risks are still great.
