Nanotechnology Investment Potential

Is it all hype without substance? Does it promise more than it can
possibly ever deliver? Do you even know what a Nano is? 

Approx. 2 years ago whilst examining future potential rule breaking
Industries we, Jat4 and myself, became convinced Nanotechnology had
the potential to dwarf even the advent of the Internet in it's scope
and potential future investment possibilities. At that time there
were very few Companies involved and really only one pure play public
Company, Nanophase Technologies(NANX).

Since then we have kept it on our radar and have witnessed tremendous
Scientific development. That has still to translate into commercial or
investment success but we are now definitely on the cusp of exciting
commercial applications being brought to market over the next few
years, Carbon Nanotubes immediately springs to mind.

Several months ago we began aggressively researching these developments
and set up a home page in speakers corner, C4's Parking Lot, where we
began depositing or parking our embryonic database.
If you count the list below there are currently over 120 companies and
being added to everyday. As you can appreciate this is a massive task
and we need help.
We are posting on this board as it either expresses an interest in
Nanotechnology, RuleBreaking Industries or is indeed a company that has
 declared itself to be working on a Nanotech development already.
If you have any interest already glance down the list and check if your
own favourite Nano development is listed, if it isn't please let us
know. If you are really, really interested and would like to assist
Jat4 and myself then shout, WE NEED YOU, regardless of
Investment or Scientific background.
There will be no immediate short term reward from an investment
perspective but from an educational view we can promise it will be
fun and from that some riches should ensue.
After all we are not Fools for nothing, amuse,educate & enrich
