There are distinct lessons learnt from Dotcom bust, by venture capitalists, entrepreneurs, stock market investors and government. However we have a short memory, and we tend to forget these lessons. Nanotech has that potential of becoming that "Hype-monger". As I mentioned in my earlier post, venture capital funding in nanotechnology is on the borderline of being "casually optimistic".

I have no doubts about the potential of Nanotechnology in generating phenomenal returns, but I am certainly worried about the time frame in which I can realize those returns.
