National Citizen’s Technology Forum held on nanotechnology

Abstract:
A while back Senior Associate Stuart Scott let us know that he had been selected to participate in a National Citizen's Technology Forum process on nanotechnology, sponsored by Arizona State and University of North Carolina, among other schools. Presumably this is funded by the social science budget of the U.S. National Nanotechnology Initiative, via NSF. Regarding topics covered, Stuart commented: "Their interest seems to be transhumanism, nanotechnology as applied to augmentation, and ‘public policy' implications such as how should ‘we' allocate things when not all can afford them."

He sent the URL for notes on interests and concerns from the human enhancement policy discussions: www4.ncsu.edu/~pwhmds/notes.html
and the final reports: www4.ncsu.edu/~pwhmds/final_reports.html
