Ed. note: every Friday (more or less) Nanotechnology Law Report’s David Fischer will look back at the week’s news and analysis of nano related issues. If you have something you’d like to bring to our attention, email him.
- The big event this week was the International Conference on Nanotechnology Occupational and Environmental Health & Safety in Cincinnati, Ohio. Nanotechnology Law Report’s John Monica filed two reports (one, two) and Nanotechbuzz‘s George Elvin filed one too.
- Nanopublic on why red milk is one nano product that will not work.
- Nanodot previews a new book by German physicist Jürgen Altmann of Dortmund University on military nanotechnology; it sounds very interesting (Responsible Nanotechnology also posts about this book).
- Nanotechbuzz on nanotechnology and toothpaste and nanotechnology and molecular computers.
- Nanotechnology Law Report’s Patrick Lewis examines consumer attitudes towards nanotechnology and Michael Heintz on the Berkley City Council’s consideration of code amendments to require additional reporting by companies which produce or use nanotechnology.
- The ASTM International Committee on Nanotechnology approved its first standard: Terminology of Nanotechnology.
