A fascinating bit in The Economist about the biotech backlash among consumers, and how nanotechnology may soon be up for the same treatment.

I agree in part with the premise, which is that all this backlash is kinda stupid, but do think we should be much less cavalier about unleashing GMO's into the world. But largely that's because what gets released tends to be Monsanto's one-generational seeds, which cross contaminate other fields and destroy crops.

But it would be nice if the public could stop being so shortsighted and see the benefits of all these things.
