A Small Times Q&A with Thomas Kalil

Abstract:
In the beginning, government scientists and technologists sought more funding for nanotechnology. In the end, a president name-checked nano in a key speech and within months it was a national initiative. But what or who built the bridge between the lab and Oval Office? Many people and events helped launch the National Nanotechnology Initiative. But a linchpin was Thomas Kalil, President Clinton’s deputy assistant for technology and economic policy. Now doing similar work at the University of California, Berkeley, Kalil recently reflected on his role in the NNI and the initiative’s progress on the eve of its fifth anniversary.
