On Nanotechnology

A very fun Stratfor piece on nanotech called "Nanotechnology and the Regulation of New Technologies" says: "A recent patent application was submitted for an organism composed of cells whose genetic makeup has been limited only to the genes necessary to maintain life. These synthetic organisms, combined with nanotechnologies that can provide structure and even potentially movement, create essentially programmable living things."

Security implications anybody? :-)
