Opinion: Have you talked nano to YOUR Congressperson lately?

Abstract:
Ok, Small Times is a big offender. This is the first year we attended the NanoBusiness Alliances' public policy tour in Washington, DC. It always seemed like something we should do, but, like many of you out there, other priorities came up.

If you didn't attend, you missed out. Are you concerned about EH&S? Research incentives? Early-stage funding? Sarbanes-Oxley? Overall competitiveness of the US in technology? The nano policy tour, which runs about the same time every year, is your time to dialog with the congressional members and staffers that make the laws you like to sit around the table and grip about.
