Our Nano is Bigger than your Nano

The Times of India has an interesting article on India, China and South Korea emerging as front runners among developing nations in nanotechnology (Ed.—I thought that South Korea was pretty well developed). My favorite quote is that the government of India has “allocated Rs One billion ($22.8 million) under its 10th five year plan (2002-07).”

While I think that it is great that developing nations are working on nanotechnology, a government five year plan is not the way to develop any new technology. My humble advice is to keep the bureaucrats away from any and all developing technology.
