Mike suggested Zyvex, but they aren't public yet. It's easy to find
companies doing work in MEMS and very limited forms of nano (nanofluids
seems to be taking off right now), but not in Drexlerian nanotech. IBM is
doing very interesting basic research in a range of areas from advanced
computation to materials science.

For an extropic socially-responsible fund, I would suggest:
Celera Genomics (CRA)
StemCell, Inc. (STEM)
Nexell Therapeutics (NEXL)
Aastrom Biosciences (ASTM)
Human Genome Sciences (HGSI)
Genzyme Transgenics (GZTC)
Applied Biosystems (PEB)
Microvision (MVIS)
Myriad Genetics (MYGN)

Not yet public: Advanced Cell Technology

I'm sure I'm missing plenty. More suggestions?
