Nanotech lets you manipulate molecules; politics lets you manipulate science

I used to think that science was a dispassionate quest for truth, unencumbered by mystical beliefs or misinformed do-gooders. But then I grew up.

I am fascinated by the promise of biotech and things like stem-cell research. And I’m fascinated by the promise, albeit one that won’t deliver for many years to come, of nanotechnology. Speaking of which, Larry Lessig has a great article on the politics of nanotechnology research.

Ah, politics and science. They go together like…um, like fish and bicycles.


P.S. If you appreciate these kinds of observations, you might want to read this as well.
