Experimenting with Nanotech can be dangerous

Terror group launches attacks
While it is being touted as the next big thing for technology, Nanotech does not appear to have the support of everyone. In Mexico City an anti-technology group calling itself "Individuals Tending to Savagery" claimed it was responsible for a package bomb that injured two university professors just outside Mexico City.

Two boffins were injured outside Monterrey Technological Institute's campus in the State of Mexico on the outskirts of the capital. One of the boffins was involved in robotics research. Mexico State Attorney General Alfredo Castillo said at a news conference that the group's involvement was identified from a partially destroyed note found at the scene. The group opposes experiments with nanotechnology and has staged attacks on academics before.  It has been linked to attacks in several different countries of Europe, including Spain and France.

The target was professor Oscar Camacho who is doing research on "micro-electro-mechanical systems." His academic background includes computer and electronic engineering. Nothing that would get him laid at a Christmas party, but suddenly sounds more dangerous than being James Bond.
