I am very grateful to Benjamin Lepene, CEO of Safe NanoMaterials, Inc., the newest member company of VT KnowledgeWorks, for sending me this April Fool’s Day nanospoof–and for explaining it! 

According to Ben, the Nanowerk April 1 blog post Newly formed Nanotechnology Protection Agency (NPA) to regulate molecular assemblers "pokes fun at the nanotoxicology efforts and the fear of self-replicating nanobots."

I just finished watching I Am Legend on DVD.  Those monsters looked like self-replicating nanobots to me.  I think we should fear ’em!
