Mark this day

I’ve been watching the US Open today, and I saw the first ad for nanotechnology. Hewlett Packard has a 60-second ad talking about things 1,000th of a human hair wide and the things they may do. I put this on a par with the first time I saw a PC commercial about 25 years ago. It was a beginning.

Of course, it’s also probably the beginning of a bubble-bust-recover cycle typical of new technologies.
