NO RATINGS
A few years ago, I wrote a trend report titled "Smaller, Faster, Better" highlighting not only nano and micro technologies but also a general sizing down across the board.  A striking number of experts dismissed it as irrelevant for the American market.  I love having articles like this that back up my trend reports with current information.  Thank you!


I'd love to see the process 3M and IBM are developing in action.  It sounds amazing.  It's good to see 3M in new areas.

and a video of one from the University of Washington here:
