MNT 2.0?

Following on from the rumours about the DTI MNT network we were tickled to see a similar politcally led initiative being proposed in Russia.

What particularly caught our eye was the comment that although “hardly anyone present at the meeting realizes what nanotechnology actually means,” and the budget already agreed, Prime Minister Mikhail Fradkov suggested a Vatican style solution – “shut in the room those who are to find a solution. You have a few days for elaboration.”

The effect of locking a bunch of people who know nothing about nanotechnology in a room until they agree to change the budget may hurry things along, but lets just hope they don’t take a copy of Engines of Creation or anything mentioning a trillion dollar market with them.
