The Visicalc Effect

If you want to get an idea of where IT is headed, Singapore was the place to be this week. At the launch of the 10 Year Infocomm Technology Roadmap, delegates heard visions of the future from Intel, Crossbow, British Telecom, and of course Cientifica.

While nanotechnology has a lot of work to do to even nudge CMOS let alone displace it, it was fascinating to see how many of the other speakers mentioned nanotechnologies - almost all of them in fact! There is, thank goodness, a growing awareness that nanotechnology will not be an industry as such, but that the ability to manipulate matter is will be as significant as our ability to manipulate digital data.

All we need now is the easy to use application that no business can do without, theVisicalc of nanotech?
