An Australian academic has been chosen as editor-in-chief of the first scholarly magazine devoted to the ethics of nanotechnology.
John Weckert, a Wagga Wagga-based expert on information technology and philosophy at Charles Sturt University, has been putting the finishing touches to an editorial board for the new journal, Nanoethics: Ethics for technologies that converge at the nanoscale.
(Ed.'s note: Well, almost the "first scholarly magazine devoted to the ethics of nanotechnology." Guess they missed seeing the notice about Nanotechnology Perceptions. Not that it hurts to have more groups involved in preparing for nanotechnology, in fact it is a good thing, but there are several other groups, notably the ones we interviewed for this month's report: Nanoethics Group, Science, Technology and Society Program, Center for Responsible Nanotechnology, NanoScience & Technology Studies: Societal and Ethical Implications Project, and of course the Foresight Nanotech Institute.
BTW - "the grey goo problem" is not a problem - see Gray Goo is a Small Issue.)
