Jurvi – The Father of Nanotechnology

March 31, 2005

VC Steve Jurvetson gets profiled in The Financial Times as the Second Coming of Thomas Edison. The a:c has made its case that Jurvetson has been behaving like a pompous self-promoter of his own over-powering intelligence. But the FT disagrees and – together with a large photo of Jurvetson’s finely-chiseled head striking a savant pose – reprints Jurvetson’s resume including his prodigious academic achievements, his stint developing chips at Intel, and his great investment win in Hotmail. The FT goes on to print Jurvetson’s prediction that Nanotechnology will dwarf the achievements of the Internet. The FT paraphrases Jurvetson acknowledging that listening to him “involves a willingness to take seriously the ’embarrassing and futuristic’ – to imagine things that most would consign to the outlandish world of science fiction.”
