I am professor at Penn State, where along with Profs Mark Horn and Richard Devon, I will be teaching an undergraduate engineering course on nanotechnology design in the context of the ethical implications of nanotechnology. I was delighted to find your open source nanotechnology handbook on wikibooks. Together with our students, we will work to add content where appropriate, especially in the nanotech and society pages.

Our course description is wiki'd here:

Thanks again for an excellent start to the wikibook!

Dear Rich

That sounds wonderful - exactly the kind of activity I was hoping it would generate!

Good luck and let me know if I can help (though my time is somewhat limited).

Any comments and ideas for the overall structure of the book are also very welcome!

Hi again Rich

Attached are some notes for an update of the nano and society chapter that I once began doing but never found time to finish working on (partly because I missed someone to write it with - so you come in very handy!). It contains ideas and resources you might find useful - feel free to use it!

With best regards Kristian
