What is the Role of the Public in Nanotechnology's Development?
Science to my mind always seemed to be an inquiry on how the world around us operates. If it serves anything, it might be our curiosity, but I am wondering if we might be confusing science with technology when we see it as providing some kind of service to citizens and consumers.
Anyway, the main point of the piece seems to be that we should focus on what the public actually wants to know instead of what scientists believe they should know.
