Town hall meetings are usually the politicians' province, especially as the presidential race heats up, but there's no rule against scientists holding them.
That's happening in Evanston, Ill., where Northwestern University researchers are staging nanotechnology town hall meetings. They give scientists a chance to talk about their work, and interested citizens can ask questions.
The first meeting, staged last week, featured Chad Mirkin, director of Northwestern's International Institute for Nanotechnology, who said that like any advance, nanotech has potential for good and ill. However, Mirkin mostly stressed the good.
