and Events]||[Debate Overview]|
A group of nanotechnologists who don't like the tone and content of an article on nanotechnology in the April Scientific American have responded to it in an innovative way. In addition to the usual approach of submitting a letter to the editor, they posted a point-by-point rebuttal...and alerted people about the posting by email...
But in a lengthy rebuttal, posted on the web just after the issue of Scientific American was published, Merkle details his view that the article is biased against nanotechnology and is inaccurate. He points out that the web makes it possible for such "inaccurate and misleading information [to be] rapidly squelched."
