Nanotech prospect affecting business decisions

from the waves-of-the-future? dept.
The prospect of nanotech is already affecting real-world business decisions, as reported by Reuters on Yahoo about the company KPNQwest NV, the Dutch-American data communications company: "President and Chief Executive Jack McMaster said nanotechnology meant the company may be able to pack so much more processing power into each 10,000 square meter center that it could build fewer. That would save it a fortune, as each center costs more than 50 million euros ($44.48 million) to build…'I've begun to rethink my position only because of the implications of nanotechnology,' he said. 'The amount of computing power that's going to occupy a square meter could be four, five, six times what we initially thought.' "
