We've just passed the sixth anniversary of CRN's founding, back in late December 2002. Since then, we've come a long way and accomplished a great deal, although we still have far to go in getting enough people motivated to take the right kind of action.
The good news is that after six years, the work of the Center for Responsible Nanotechnology has had at least some impact in raising awareness of the transformative and disruptive potential of molecular manufacturing, and we seem to have quieted nearly all of the outright skeptics.
However, that's only the first level of our three step mission:
- Raise awareness of the benefits, the dangers, and the possibilities for responsible use of advanced nanotechnology.
- Expedite a thorough examination of the environmental, humanitarian, economic, military, political, social, medical, and ethical implications of molecular manufacturing.
- Assist in the creation and implementation of wise, comprehensive, and balanced plans for responsible worldwide use of this transformative technology.
More news coming soon about our plans to move forward in 2009...
