Today, people are increasingly able to create and share written and recorded media via the Internet. This phenomenon, now evident in the explosion of blogs and online social networks, is often called Web 2.0, or the new media. It has created compelling new avenues for public discourse, creative expression, and electronic commerce.
As other countries increasingly incorporate nanotechnology into products, they too have the opportunity to address safety, oversight, and public perception concerns from the outset. We all share this responsibility, says Wilson Center research associate Evan Michelson.
Scientists talk about the convergence of nanotechnology, biotechnology, information technology and cognitive science in this collection of exclusive interviews produced by the Science & Technology Innovation Program in conjunction with the National Science Foundation.
