Code of Ethics

Abstract:
Mike Treder: "As nanotechnology develops, one important step is the professionalization of the people who work on nanotechnology. A useful step towards professionalization is the development of a code of ethics for the profession."

That's how University of South Carolina student Ashley Shew introduces her "Proposal for a Code of Ethics for Nanotechnology: For Your Perusal & Provocation." I'm not a nanotechnologist, per se, and so my opinion on this should count for little. But it does look to me as if Ashley has made a good start.
