For cutting-edge information and ideas about nanotech, check out “Responsible Nanotechnology,” the official weblog of the Center for Responsible Nanotechnology (CRN).
The lofty aim of our blog is to raise public awareness about molecular manufacturing—both benefits and dangers—and to inspire leadership in making wise choices about the safe development and responsible use of nanotechnology.
CRN is a non-profit research and advocacy organization concerned with the major societal and environmental implications of advanced nanotechnology. CRN promotes public awareness and education, and the development of effective recommendations to maximize opportunities and reduce hazards. CRN was founded in 2002 by Mike Treder (that’s me, I’m the main blog author) and Chris Phoenix.
We engage individuals and groups to better understand the implications of molecular manufacturing and to focus on the real risks and benefits of the technology. Our goal is the creation and implementation of wise, comprehensive, and balanced plans for global management of this transformative technology.
