A flier for a new journal “Nanotechnology Perceptions” dropped into our mailbox today. Edited by Jeremy Ramsden of Cranfield University, it promises to become “the leading vehicle of opinion, dialogue, and debate about nanotechnology issues set in the widest possible context.”
As perception of nanotechnology is somewhat variable, ranging from grey goo and nanobots to trillions of dollars, with little in between, there is certainly room for such a publication, despite the plethora of blogs that claim the same mission.
On the same subject, a new EU funded project ‘Nanologue’ has just been launched, a "Europe-wide dialogue launched on benefits, risks and social, ethical and legal implications of nanotechnology."Posted by Cientifica at March 3, 2005 03:39 PM | TrackBack
