Select Nanotechnology Now Quotes

Mike Treder, CRN

"With a name like the Center for Responsible Nanotechnology, you end up on a lot of mailing lists - but almost all of the material we are sent is trivial, irrelevant, or blatant hucksterism. Fortunately, there is one site we can consistently rely on for useful news, ideas, and information: Nanotechnology Now."

"...we admire their unstinting commitment to promoting ethical and responsible use of new technologies. We recommend Nanotechnology Now to anyone with even a passing interest in the rapidly developing world of nanotech."

Mike Treder Executive Director of the Center for Responsible Nanotechnology. See also the weblog Responsible Nanotechnology
June 2005

"For those searching for news and background information on trends and research in the field of nanotechnology, consider your search over. This site offers a wealth of information with daily news articles, hundreds of links to nanotechnology organizations and research sites, and images of nanogizmos and other ultra small things." From Current Pick of the Web: Nanotechnology Now. April 30th, 2002
