The Internet
The Internet is a worldwide, publicly accessible network of
interconnected computer networks that transmit data by
packet switching using the standard Internet Protocol
(IP). It is a "network of networks" that consists of millions
of smaller domestic, academic, business, and
government networks, which together carry various
information and services, such as electronic mail,
online chat, file transfer, and the interlinked Web pages
and other documents of the World Wide Web.

History of ‘Nano’
http://www.nanoscape.northwestern.edu
http://www.nanotechproject.org

Established in April 2005 as a partnership between the Woodrow Wilson


International Center for Scholars and the Pew Charitable Trusts.

To ensure that as nanotechnologies advance, possible risks are minimised,


public and consumer engagement remains strong, and the potential benefits of
these new technologies are realised.

Nanotechnology Podcasts
 The initial Podcast launched in October 2006, provided a short
history of the development of nanotechnology and interviewed
several key players from within the nanotech industry, research
community and government to draw out their current views on the
likely impact nanotechnology will have on healthcare, materials and
the environment.
 The second Podcast in the series, gathers the opinions of key
stakeholders with interests in the health, safety and environmental
impacts of nanotechnology. It poses the questions: Are there risks
associated with some nanotechnologies? How should these risks be
managed? The Podcast aims to inform interested listeners on the
issues and perspectives, and leaves the conclusion to the listener.
NanoVic expects that the ethical and regulatory aspects of
nanotechnology will be the topic of considerable public debate over
the next 2-3 years.
