The objectives of the meeting are to:-capture a sense of what is happening in nanotechnology around the state in industry, academia and Ohio-based federal labs;-foster and promote collaborations within the state that will lead to positive economic outcomes based on nanotechnology; and-hear a national perspective on nanotechnology from prominent experts in the nanotechnology arena.

The summit will begin with a nanobasics primer or a tour of nanotechnology labs at the Air Force Research Laboratory Materials Directorate (sorry the link may not work). (If you are going on the tour be sure to bring your drivers license and a Passport, Birth Certificate or your Green Card)

I will be there presenting a poster on what nanobusinesses need to do to protect their investment in research and development. The first ten people to track me down and use the word NanoPundit will get a free drink at the hotel bar on Wednesday night.


  • "Help me if you can I'm feeling down" - I also think I must be lost.

    I was searching for Elvis and somehow ended up in your blog, but you know I'm sure I saw him on the golf course yesterday. Now this is strange because usually I see him in the supermarket.

    Honest really, last time I saw him there he was right in front of me, next to the steaks singing "Love me Tender".

    He said to me (his lip was only slightly curled) "Boy, you need to get yourself a shiny, new lcd tv to go with that blue suede sofa of yours.

    But Elvis said I, In the Ghetto nobody has a lcd tv .

    Dude I'm All Shook Up said Elvis. I think I'll have me another cheeseburger.

    Then I'm gonna go home, put ma dancin' suit on, munch me some uppers and freak out to that maaaaaaaaad surfing scene in Apocalypse Now on ma lcd tv .

    How cool is that boy?

    And then he just walked out of the supermarket singing. . .

    "You give me love and consolation,
    You give me strength to carry on "

    Strange day or what? :-)
