Rocky Rawstern has been the Editor of
Nanotechnology Now since 2001.
During that time, Rocky has interviewed hundreds of nanotechnology leaders from around the world, from government leaders to investors, business leaders to scientists.
He is responsible for posting Nanotechnology Now’s daily news, which consists of reading and sorting through several hundred news articles, and winnowing it down to the 2 to 3 dozen most pertinent. In 5 years he has posted over 20,000 articles relating to nanotechnology.
Once each month Rocky organizes, interviews, and writes articles for the NanoNews-Now report, which offers an in-depth analysis of one important issue relevant to nanotechnology development.
Each month he also interviews university scientists for the NanoTech Transfer Report. This report helps Nanotechnology Now readers keep up to date on important nanotech developments, discover interesting new nanotech patents, and find lucrative partners.
In 2005 he won the Foresight Nanotech Institute Prize in Communication, recognizing “outstanding journalistic or other communication endeavors that lead to a better public understanding of molecular nanotechnology and its high social and environmental impact.”
Rocky is a Senior Associate of the Foresight Nanotech Institute, and lives in Southern Oregon, USA.
