Center for Responsible Nanotechnology
An organization I co-founded in 2002, dedicated to research and education about molecular nanotechnology, its risks and benefits, and how best to handle it.
I've written a number of papers on nanotechnology, both at CRN and
before, covering ethics, life extension, assembler timeline, blood replacement, and more... (See below for older nanotech links.)
In the time it takes to burn this flag...
A lament and call for action: After heavy lobbying, the U.S. Vice President sabotaged talks that would have allowed poor countries to have cheap medicines.
A brief biography:
Born Christmas day, 1970 (yes, I got cheated on birthday presents).
Grew up in upstate New York--a very boring place. Went to the
Clarkson School for a year, then Stanford, where I took a nanotechnology
class from Eric Drexler (and I've been studying molecular manufacturing
ever since). Graduated in 1991 with an
MSCS (AI concentration). Worked at Electronics for Imaging for six
years (using no AI whatsoever). In the mid-90's, I heard of an
amazingly cool dyslexia correction method and started doing it as a
hobby; then it became a career, then I did some pilot studies on
flexible perception (visual and auditory) that I'll be happy to tell
you about. In 2002 I co-founded the Center for Responsible Nanotechnology,
which has been my primary focus since.
