Review for Institute For Ethics And Emerging Technologies, Inc., Hartford, CT, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I was first introduced to IEET as an organization at the Center for Responsible Nanotechnology Conference in Tucson, Arizona in 2007. At the time, I was just beginning to understand how possible emerging technologies might effect me in the future, but I was unaware of how to pursue information dealing with near future aspects of nanotech, an how to get myself involved with the community at large. IEET gave me direction via their website, newsletters, and their general out going personalities. Mike Treder and Chris Phoenix both helped me get into contact with other interesting people and organizations, and have continued to foster their relationships with me 3 years after first meeting them. IEET.org has some of the most comprehensive information and articles available concerning a wide variety of topics in the realms of future and ethical technologies by a wide variety of people. Theirs is the first site I turn to when I wonder what my peers are thinking about something new and wonderful! Without IEET providing me with a little direction, I may not have continued with my futurist inclinations and may not have become as involved with the community I love so much today.
