Citizen Recommendations on Nanotechnology and Society Available Online

Patricia Bonner just informed us about the Initiative on Nanotechnology and Society at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, which conducted a citizens’ consensus conference during April 2005 and has just posted a report online with citizen recommendations. Writes Patricia, “I read the report over the weekend and felt pretty darn good about the recommendations “ordinary citizens” developed with help from UWI staff.” To check out the Initiative’s work, visit their website: www.lafollette.wisc.edu/research/Nano/forumrelease. From there, follow the links to the full report with citizen recommendations. To read media coverage of the consensus conference go to www.madison.com/tct/mad/business//index.php?ntid=38025
