"...she’s helping develop educational outreach programs designed to ensure that tomorrow’s workers have the right skills for nanotechnology industries – and that the public will be able to separate nanotechnology fact from fiction."

I don't know about you, but someone who thinks that there will BE jobs in any significant numbers in the "nanotechnology industry" once real nanofactories actually make the scene isn't the kind of person I'd trust to tell me how to "separate fact from fiction".

“There’s a misperception that nanotechnology is really still science fiction,” said Healy ... “People generally don’t know what nanotechnology really is. There’s a risk that their perceptions will be based on popular culture portrayals of it rather than fact.”

We've come a long way since the NNI hijacked the term "nanotechnology" from Drexler, et al, who originally used it to describe MM. Now they're accusing those who coined the term of distorting it! Brillant.
