The Big Down: Atomtech & Technologies Converging at the Nanoscale
ETC Group, an advocacy group issued a report recommending a halt to some nanotech activities. The report proposes a shutdown of all research and development of molecular manufacturing and reiterates its call for a moratorium on commercial production of new nanomaterials. The report also suggests creating an international forum for evaluating new technologies and a United Nations-led effort to monitor corporations involved in new technologies and their markets.
