A Citizen Jury for Science
This idea came up in conversation with Pat Mooney of the ETC Group in regards to an article I'm writing about the regulation of synthetic biology -- not just the "Will it kill us all?" angle, but how regulators and the public can shape this emerging field in a way that ensures its benefits to society.
Pat mentioned something I'd not heard about before: two years ago, the UK convened juries on nanotechnology. They brought together randomly picked people to grill nanotech researchers about what they were doing, how they were doing it, and what it all meant.
