Here are some links about the upcoming 8th Foresight Conference on MNT this November (sticker shock warning- registration isn't cheap, My Eyes Glaze Over warning- these conferences are intended to give techies the chance to exchange information, with all that implies about the content of presentations). It is my intention to go, since this is the first one that is in easy reach for me (it is in Baltimore, I live in NY). Hmmm, I wonder if the fact that it will be a stone's throw from DC and the newly announced National Initiative (topic of a Special Session) have something to do with each other?Here's the Info:8th FORESIGHT CONFERENCE ON MOLECULAR NANOTECHNOLOGY(http://www.foresight.org/Conferences/MNT8/index.html)November 3-5, 2000Washington D.C.
