Something interesting from Perdue’s speech

To lead, we must innovate. That means, we must become a State of Innovation.

That means making innovation our competitive advantage in every area of our economy – in our existing industries, in our homegrown small businesses and in the growth industries of the future, such as life sciences and nano-manufacturing.

My budget includes $38 million in bonds to complete the construction of a Nanotechnology Research Center at Georgia Tech to establish Georgia as a global leader in this emerging industry.

To ensure Georgia’s energy future, I am budgeting $2 million to seed research on developing alternative fuels, such as expanding our BioRefinery program at the University of Georgia.

    I think reporters should give Perdue a pop quiz: “Governor, what doe a nano measurement mean?”

    a) A hundredth
    b) A thousandth
    c) A tenth
    d) A billionth
    e) None of the above

    Hmmm…class, do you know what we’re going to spend $38 million on?
