    What humors me is the fact that you're supposedly going to have these wondrous tiny machines that can work at the cellular level, and you're just going to use them to deliver old-fashioned drugs? I guess medical science isn't imaginative enough to get past the existing way of doing things. It kind of reminds me when futurists used to imagine robots as humanoid devices, pulling levers and turning knobs--with it never occurring to them that it would be much more efficient to actually REPLACE the old levers and knobs altogether and let the machine be operated directly by computer.
