Mike Treder, CRN

"With a name like the Center for Responsible Nanotechnology, you end up on a lot of mailing lists but almost all of the material we are sent is trivial, irrelevant, or blatant hucksterism. Fortunately, there is one site we can consistently rely on for useful news, ideas, and information: Nanotechnology Now."

"We're happy to say that Nanotechnology Now, our favorite source for nanosphere news, recently posted their 10,000th news item. That's a sign of remarkably stable success in the uncertain world of the Internet. Beyond that, we admire their unstinting commitment to promoting ethical and responsible use of new technologies. We recommend Nanotechnology Now to anyone with even a passing interest in the rapidly developing world of nanotech."

"The nanotech-now site is one of the most exciting on the web, and your creativity and responsibility in keeping this going has been terrific."

Mark Ratner, November 5th, 2003. Winner of the 2001 Feynman Prize in Nanotechnology, and Professor in Chemistry at Northwestern University. He is widely credited as the "father of molecular-scale electronics" thanks to his groundbreaking work with Ari Aviram that first envisioned how electronic circuit elements might be constructed from single molecules and how these circuits might behave. He lectures worldwide on nanotechnology and its implications. Author of Nanotechnology: A Gentle Introduction to the Next Big Idea. November 2002 Read reviews

"An excellent news portal for both nanoscale technologies and molecular manufacturing is Nanotechnology Now.", June 14th, 2006

"As usual, Nanotechnology Now's interviews elicit quality information, unbiased reporting and a well balanced selection of issues covering the entire nanotechnology horizon."

Douglas W. Jamison, Vice President Harris & Harris Group, Inc. email feedback

"As a publicly traded venture capital firm focusing on making initial investments exclusively in what we term tiny technology (nanotechnology, microsystems and MEMS), I wanted to commend you for your coverage of the happenings in the nanotech community. I enjoy reading the newsletter each week, and I find your appropriate headings make finding information easy. Four sections I find particularly helpful are Patents, Discoveries, Worthwhile Readings and Events & Announcements. Keep up the great work, and thank you for the service to the nanotech community."

James T. Clements, NanoSciences, Inc. email feedback

"Thanks so much for your newsletter.... it is an outstanding source of reference information, and a great connection point for this emerging community. We especially enjoyed your recent profile of Bo Varga, since we've worked with Bo and NanoSIG in the Bay Area.

Keep up the great work... this is a wonderful opportunity for all of us to pioneer new ideas, and advance new technologies."

Patrick L. Barry, writer for Science@NASA email feedback

"The Nanotechnology Now website contains the best single link I could find on the Web to brief my readers about Nanotubes. Packed full of concise definitions and an exhaustive list of Web references, it serves at the same time as an excellent introduction for beginners and a clearinghouse of more technical information."    The Right Stuff for Super Spaceships

"This well-developed site provides an unusually comprehensive source of information on nanotechnology and related topics. In addition to news items, basic introductions, a glossary, and long lists of well-organized links to relevant organizations, there are resources that are hard to find elsewhere, such as a list of white papers on nanotechnology and its links to life extension, space colonization, super-intelligence, ethics, social policy, etc. The "General Information Sites" contains an especially rich collection of links to web pages on utility fog."

Current Pick of the Web: Nanotechnology Now. April 30th, 2002

"For those searching for news and background information on trends and research in the field of nanotechnology, consider your search over. This site offers a wealth of information with daily news articles, hundreds of links to nanotechnology organizations and research sites, and images of nanogizmos and other ultra small things. You can find out where the latest nanotech conferences are taking place, or in the rare case that you can't find what you need on the site, you can browse through a selection of nanotechnology-related books, which are linked to an online bookstore. Or, take part in the site's nanotech poll, then check out the nanotech factoid and site-of-the-week/quote-of-the-week features."

Science Magazine


"...Immerse yourself in the ever-shrinking world of nanotechnology at this handy portal, which offers a links-rich introduction to the field, up-to-the-minute nano news, a list of the 12 best nanotechnology Web sites, and a fat glossary. You'll also find a rundown of corporate, government, and academic labs pursuing nanotechnology. For a glimpse into the nanofuture, read interviews with experts such as science writer Ed Regis or follow a link to a gallery of possible medical applications. Some day, for instance, dentists might be able to hang up their drills, instead dispatching squads of tiny machines the size of pinheads to patch cavities."
