Nano-Hype And Market Reality

from the slow-going dept

Now, we’re on the stage after the backlash where some people say that, yes, nanotechnology was overhyped, but that doesn’t mean it’s no good at all. It just means that people investing in nanotech need to be a bit more patient and look at things in the long term. You know… like real investors.
