Lifeboat Foundation announces triple partnership

Minden, NV | Posted on January 17th, 2009

The Lifeboat Foundation has activated a triple partnership including the Lifeboat Foundation, Nanotech-Now, and The American Journal of Bioethics.

The Lifeboat Foundation is launching a monthly column addressing the
ethical issues that scientists and consumers of nanotechnology will
face. Its column editor is Lifeboat Foundation Scientific Advisory Board
member Summer Johnson, who is Executive Managing Editor of The American
Journal of Bioethics and Chief Operating Officer, Bioethics Education
Network. Her bio is at lifeboat.com/ex/bios.summer.johnson

Summer says

"The literature in this area is not growing at nearly 1/10th of the
pace of the nanoscience literature itself and it is my belief that
ethicists, scientists, and lay people should be aware of these
issues (sooner rather than later)."

Summer wrote the first column which has now been published at
http://www.nanotech-now.com/columns/?article=263 The next three columns
will be authored by the Lifeboat Foundation's Bob Krone, Tom Powers, and
Tihamer T. Toth-Fejel.

Nanotech-Now has agreed to run this column. They will give the column
front and center placement once a month for 24 hours then a rotation
down the homepage as their other columns load their articles. Google
News indexes their columns every 15 minutes.

The American Journal of Bioethics and its website, bioethics.net are
also sponsoring the column by featuring it on their website as well as
their blog. In addition, for each column, they will coordinate the
production of an accompanying podcast by the author discussing the
column which will be hosted on their website, podcast.bioethics.net.

Bioethics.net has approximately 22 million viewers per year and
podcast.bioethics.net, started just last year, averaged 20,000 downloads
per podcast in 2008. They have the technological capacity to do these
podcasts with authors around the country and make them available 24/7.
Soon they will have a site via Beyond Campus on iTunes University where
they will transfer all of this material and repost it as a channel
accessible to all via iTunes or RSS feed on bioethics.net.
