I ran across this site today, PR Newswire - A United Business Media Company
, and the lead paragraph got me very intrigued:
"NanoMarkets, LC, a leading
nanotechnology market research and analysis firm based here, today announced
the release of the first in a series of white papers that examines business
and market trends for the emerging nanotech space. Entitled "What Will the
Future Nanotech Industry Look Like?" this paper discuses some of the
fundamental issues facing the nanotechnology sector and draws some interesting
conclusions on how and where it may wind up. The paper can be accessed from
the firm's website at http://www.nanomarkets.net."
Well, based on the legal disclaimer, I am not going to post any of the content of the white paper, but I am going to recommend that those interested in nanotechnology, or just financial investments in new technologies, go to the web site, NanoMarkets
, and sign up. It is a fairly painless process, i.e., free, and their response time is very quick. And most importantly, it's a pretty good paper, concisely written.
For those with more of a policy bent, let me recommend
NANOTECHNOLOGY AND REGULATORY POLICY: THREE FUTURES
by Glenn Harlan Reynolds
. This is a very solid policy paper, and I think Reynolds does a great job of keeping the paper very readable. And, for those new to nanotechnology, Reynolds includes a five page beginner's guide to nanotechnology immediately after his introduction.
