The 13 May 2002 issue of the information technology industry trade journal Information Week contains an extensive feature article on nanotechnology ("The Next (Not So) Big Thing", by David M. Ewalt) that takes a quick, broad look at the field before narrowing down to its potential impact on the IT industry. In an accompanying editorial ("The Future Is Here And It's Verrry Small"), IW Editor Stephanie Stahl emphasizes the point that "nanotechnology has the potential to become one of those disruptive technologies that will dramatically change the way you do business".
The IW issue also contains several sidebars on current and potential applications of nanotech:
- Nanotech Products Will Arrive In Years, Not Decades
- Nanotech May Aid Hospitals, Patients
- The Sky's Not The Limit For Nanotech
- The Nanotech Players
