Seattle Times publishing month old story on nanotechnology

Back in October, Jon Van of the Chicago Tribune presented an article Slow patent process hurts nanotech progress. On November 27, the Seattle Times ran the same article under the title: Patent backlog hampers nanotech sector.

How about "Glacially slow recognition of issues undermines credibility of newspapers?"

As a separate matter, there are literally hundreds of US patents in the area of fullerenes, but vanishingly small commercialization. This observation undermines any theory that the USPTO is to blame as to fullerenes. Recall also the article in the Wall Street Journal: Whatever happened to the buckyball? Nobody knows. Maybe the Seattle Times can republish that article...
