What Others Say About Rocky

Search Engine Optimization and Website Consulting

The 8 1/2 years that we did search engine optimization work for Fortune 500 companies would not have been possible without his leadership and expertise in building large catalogs of optimized web pages to rank in the top 10 on every major search engine. He is skilled in all areas of html, ftp, web content management and link optimization. I highly recommend him for website design, construction and optimization for improved search engine rankings.
—Brian Lundquist, CEO, 7th Wave, Inc., Publisher, Nanotechnology Now (see site statistics)


It is a professional pleasure to write in commendation of Rocky Rawstern.

I first met and worked with Rocky in his role as Editor of Nanotechnology Now. I found him to be one of those rare "lighthouse" editors who understand the deep underpinnings of their publication's subject matter and who also lead their field by the choice of content and framing of the discussion. I believe Rocky is one of the best technical communicators in the emerging technologies genre.

Subsequently, Rocky and I worked together as part of the NanoBioNexus team that designed and constructed the NanoTumorCenter website. Rocky's understanding of the intricacies of search engine optimization, website design and construction is unsurpassed in my experience.

I have an extremely high degree of confidence in Rocky's professional skills across-the-board.

Nanotechnology and Nanoscale Materials

Rocky Rawstern has played a vital role in the development of Nanotechnology Now as its Editor. Relying on his broad knowledge of nanotechnology, Rocky established Nanotechnology Now as a “must read” for those of us in the nanotechnology industry. His vitality in this role has earned him a prominence as one of our nanotechnology leaders. But most important to us at nanoTITAN, Inc., Rocky’s selection of our company for interviews and publication in Nanotechnology Now was of great assistance in showcasing us to the industry. We are pleased to recommend Rocky to his bir consulting clients.

I have long considered Rocky the base line for the industry and public narrative on nanotechnology. He reports on what he knows and comprehensively covers what he knows is news. Rocky has an innate ability to synthesize copy and take information from diverse sources and turn it into clear accounts. Bravo!
Patti D. Hill, CEO and Founder, BlabberMouth PR.

Rocky's knowledge of nanotechnology is simply outstanding. So too is the way he consistently applies this knowledge in order to advance nano-related research and industry. Rocky has insight, guts and an indelible style! I'm an admirer and a fan.
Bob Rosenbaum, formerly of the Israel National Nanotechnology Initiative, where he helped make great progress in branding Israel as a global nanotech contender.

During our four years of work in nanotechnology and molecular manufacturing, we have seen Rocky Rawstern as one of the outstanding leaders in his ability to communicate clearly about deep and disputed subjects. Few people have been able to create balanced and informative content in a field marked by not only scientific complexity but also political maneuvering. Rocky is one of the best.
