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.
