THE nano AGE:
- WHY NANOTECHNOLOGY?
TheNanoAge.com was officially launched on December 29th 2009, on the 50th anniversary of Richard Feynman's pivotal speech, "There's Plenty of Room at the Bottom."
The site forms a cohesive prediction of the future based on a projection of the interrelation of various emerging technologies and their effect on humanity. It is written for and aimed at a general audience, and the goal is to inform people about this most fascinating technology. The complexity and detail of information increases as you go farther into the site; the home page is a breif overview of some of the main areas of influence.
This site attempts to explain the basics of nanotechnology to a general audience while alluding to its potential for either good or bad. The site may additionally be accessed from: www.TheNanoEra.com, www.TheNanoRevolution.com, www.TheNanotechnologyAge.com, and www.nano.ms. Hyperlinks going successively deeper into the site give more and more detailed information about specific nanotech topics. Underlined links take you to pages on www.thenanoage.com, while non-underlined links point to offsite resources.
Of the three main predicted defining technologies of this century (genetics, nanotech and robotics), we believe that nanotechnology will ultimately be the most transformative of our way of life. Nanotech will have an enormous impact on us in the coming decades, spurring great advances in all branches of science and technology. Our species is defined by our use of technology, and nano promises to greatly expand the definition of what it means to be human.
