Despite many industry and government financed studies into whether nanotechnology should be a priority for technological funding international governments were hesitant to allocate substantial funding for nanotechnology research and development until 2000. In 2000 President Bill Clinton announced $500 million worth of funding in support of the U.S. government's investment in nanotechnology research and development. This was a rise of 84% in comparison to 2001 and included the National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI). A White House statement at the time said that "nanotechnology is the new frontier and its potential impact is compelling."

And how are we to tell the difference between someone who just likes to "occasionally throw in something different" vs someone who wants to turn a site thats supposedly about "Responsible Nanotechnology" into their own little soapbox for plowing the latest anti-freemarket propaganda of the day? It seems here at least, theres no way to determine between these two intents as they look almost identical from this side of the web browser. One cant tell if your just accidentally looking like some wacko leftist or actually ARE one, and your bias wouldn't matter if you stuck to the topic at hand. (note: this isnt an endorsement of wacko righties either)
