SkinnyGuy writes "Carbon nanofibers and nanotubes are the future of computers, cars, energy and more, but it wonâ(TM)t happen until someone figures out how to make carbon nanotubes more efficiently and in formations that can deliver enough energy and functionality to offer practical solutions for real world problems. Honda's latest breakthrough could be the first step. Of course, Intel is working on similar carbon nanotube fabrication technology. Whoever finally delivers a practical solution, it sounds like a win-win for us." Link to Original Source
It appears that PL/I (and its dialects) is, or will be, the most widely
used higher level language for systems programming.
