Richard A. L. Jones, has been “blogging” about nanotechnology since August, 2004, at “Soft Machines — thoughts on the future of nanotechnology” It is an interesting and well-written blog which I learned about from Physics World, latest online alert, 11/1/2007.

“Richard Jones is an experimental polymer physicist at Sheffield University in the UK as well as the senior strategic advisor for nanotechnology for the UK’s Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council. His research is focused on the properties of polymers and biopolymers at surfaces and interfaces.” He is the author of Soft Machines: Nanotechnology and Life, new this month.
