Here's one that's got a date on it:

http://www.nature.com/nsu/030421/030421-14.html

They don't call them buckytubes but they do say they're made of carbon.

something IS happening

So often you hear that X is going to be the technological revolution of the millennium, the greatest thing since sliced quasars, and then nothing.

BTW, wasn't it Buckminster Fuller that said "I think I'm a verb"?

Bucky the cat was named after Buck O'Neil, the Negro League player.

Being a Verb


"I live on Earth at present,
and I don't know what I am.
I know that I am not a category.
I am not a thing -- a noun.
I seem to be a verb,
an evolutionary process --
an integral function of the universe."

-- R. Buckminster Fuller

Edit:

I think he was fond of this image(?) since on another occasion he said:

"God, to me, it seems, is a verb, not a noun, proper or improper."
