Where can we get the nano inspiration from?

From what we have already made that's big, from nature...
Anyway, aren't humans tool making creatures cause they have a weird inferiority complex?
Whatever we can think of that we think we lack, something that can make us superhuman... so not just copy nature but rather, beat it...
Is that right?
Are we breaking life cycles?
Are the nanotech properties so new that we could make mind boggling inventions? I'm curious to see what.... I think a good thing to do is to look at everything we have done, everything we know, and apply it to what we think is new, if we do, is it still new?
Ok then... take all the ideal electrical, mechanical, optical etc. behaviour and expect them from nano stuff, do the theory and the practical and see what happens... is it so super? Can we apply it to make something really new and useful? If so what? All scientists need to be inventors, we need to look at the problems we have and solve them with whatever tools we have. For now the focus is on nanotechnology... but identifying the problems should always come first.
So... what are the problems? Are there any problems at all? Or is it all psychology ... and inferiority complex. We all know that whatever problem there is it was created: we have good technology here, they suffer over there.. because we took what they had to make us rich. Solving the problem with nanotech may cause the same problem again (don't talk to me about quantum dot solar cells!) and then we'll be going around in circles, solving problems to keep the scientists busy.
I just want to live life.

Still, would like to learn more about the journey of the electron from one contact to another in polymeric nanocomposite films... polymer city here I come!

Thanks for the first blogpost from the members of NanoScience Network!!!

Welcome - about us

Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.

There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!

Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at editor@nanopaprika.eu
