Keeping up with the Nanos

Vrylena Olney

I've been paying more attention lately to bloggers and tweeters (twitterers?) writing and posting about nano topics. Here are a few that I've been enjoying:

  • 2020 Science, by Andrew Maynard, both a blog AND a twitter feed. The tagline for the blog is "providing a clear perspective on developing science and technology responsibly," and Andrew describes himself as a "scientist gone over to the dark side-- policy, communication and all that." (The dark side also includes the NISE Net, as Andrew has been involved in a number of activities with us.) He recently posted a compilation of three nano videos worth watching, "Nanotechnology in motion: the good, the bad and the...just plain weird?"
  • Kulinowski for tweets by Kristen Kulinowski "chemist, educator, policy wonk, working at the interfaces between science and society with an emphasis on nanotechnology." She also blogs on the International Council on Nanotechnology blog.
  • I also like Dietram Scheufele's blog, nanopublic, and twitter updates. Deitram is a professor at the University of Wisconsin and is interested in nanotechnology and its impact on the public. He's more active on twitter, but check out his blog if only for its link to The Onion's list of future nano applications.

Do you have any favorites to add to this list?
