Irresponsible

Currently outraging our in house science team is this irresponsible gem from the Centre for Responsible Nanotechnology.

“In fact, when I need to review the use of a physics formula, the first book I grab is Nanomedicine I. Then I try Nanosystems. My physics textbook usually stays on the shelf.”

We can only hope that any budding nanotechnologists like 14 year old Jennifer Wedebrock don’t follow this appalling example.

Richard Feynman may be a good place to start.

This was quoted out of context from a book review of Nanomedicine.

I don't see what's wrong with stating which books I find most useful for looking up examples of how to use physics formulas. And I certainly don't see anything wrong with using Freitas's work as a prototype. It's obvious from his work that he's extremely thorough and methodical.

I can only figure that my comment must have been misunderstood. Perhaps the outrage would have been better addressed by writing me privately to ask what I meant.
