Unfortunately, below is some strange debate about libertarianism. So I am highjacking your top-of-the-thread comment to provide a space for people to discuss:
-Semiconductors and ICs
-Anything funny or witty about IBM, electronics, Moore's Law, etc.
-Anything at all remotely on-topic
I actually worked with carbon nanotubes back in the day when I was doing polymer and electronics research. I can attest to how squirrelly they are and how hard it is to get them straightened out and aligned. If IBM can figure out how to do this for transistors in bulk, that'll be one hell of an achievement.
