Greetings from Vancouver where the HSS/4S meeting is happening. There are several sessions scheduled for the next few days which feature presentations from "nano & society" researchers including scholars associated with the CNS-UCSB.
The 4S program, for instance, can be viewed at: http://www.4sonline.org/27Oct4SFull_PROG.pdf
I'll try to take some time in the next frew days to offer some comments on the general themes discussed. More anon,
