Warning, nanohazard ahead

Nanohazrd: What will come next?
Nanohazrd: What will come next?

You can design the next hazard symbol for nanotechnology. The entries will be judged by the ETC, a group interested in sustainable development of new technologies. You can see some of the initial entries in their hazard symbol gallery.

I don't want to get stuck on talking only about the potential negatives about nanotech. Whether we proceed safely or not there will be hazards that need to be addressed. I thought this was a fun way of thinking about involving the public.

Your Comments, Thoughts, Questions, Ideas

Woops, I didn't realize that the competition is now closed. But you can still see what people submitted as ideas.

This blogger has some concerns that one of the winning entries is actually quite misleading.
