    nanotechnology

    "The smaller a particle, the greater its surface area to volume ratio and the higher its chemical reactivity and biological activity. The greater chemical reactivity of nanomaterials results in increased production of reactive oxygen species (ROS), including free radicals. ROS production has been found in a diverse range of nanomaterials including carbon fullerenes, carbon nanotubes and nanoparticle metal oxides. ROS and free radical production is one of the primary mechanisms of nanoparticle toxicity; it may result in oxidative stress, inflammation, and consequent damage to proteins, membranes and DNA"

    "The difference between death and survival can come down to early detection of a life-threatening disease or exposure. Nanotechnology has the potential to overcome the limitations of current approaches and thereby advance the diagnosis and treatment of life-threatening diseases, enhance our national security, and improve food safety."

    well?

    I am only semi against it. Only reason why I would be against it is not so much the chemical reaction to the possible toxicity to it, as there is a possibility of correction, but the other possible uses that would stem from the possibilities of nanotech. There are more possible uses to this technology than is stated on that site.

    The problem is when they tend to deviate from their promise to help us, in turn for the use of profit, or other uses (invasion of privacy and such, get paranoid and think of many more possible ways.)

    I by all means am for the progress of science & technology, the problem is who is going to be behind these projects. There are too many people/corporations/groups that are out there that will simply ask with money to make this tech into something they want it to be. Human nature tends to make people "want" and someone will eventually make it.

    And I'm sure there will be some sort of regulation if it does pass through, but who will be there to enforce it? It's been known that people who end up filling these spots that are supposed to regulate eventually will be occupied by previous members of these various associations. And the members will simply help their associations, in return for something else of course.

    Ugh, I posted too much... but I hope I stated my opinion.

    another interesting story.
    http://web.mit.edu/isn/

    im mostly focusing on stuff that have already been applied and tested, not the possibility of sucessfully poisoning an entire village or dealing with a non-stoppable replication in some apocalyptic scenario.
    I've been reading online articles and researches for nanotech since 2005 and im kinda surprised there are so many army references now that didnt exist last year.
    for example, MIT couple of yrs ago was clearly showing off for being dominant globally to nanotech application on computers and now they're showing off for licking army balls.

    And also, for teh lulz, immense trolling:

    so in that way, you can see applicable nanotech for the army, but not for medical uses. awesome.

    And anyhow, as for the military being MIT's pimp, it's only because the armed forces are probably funding their research now.
