There has been much press in teh NYC area about Adam Cohen who
recetnly won the Westinghouse Sciense Talnet Search. He was credited
in the local paper w/ making a printer that lets you print words in
small places (50 words into the size of a human hair).

According to the CNN sci-tech www site, Adam has made a STM, that
would be useful in creating semiconductor based IC's.

I'm wondering if he has created a STM that can "chip lithography" or
if he has just make a plain old handmade STM.

In any case it would seem that the popular press has very little
knowlege in how to report this sort of thing.
