By Kathleen Ann Goonan

Nanotech Quartet [3]

Nominated - Nebula 2000, Nominated - Locus SciFi 2001

Note, this can be a prequel to Queen urban Jazz

This is the way it begins...
...with the Silence, born of mysterious, space-originated phenomena that render Earth's dominant applied sciences lifeless -- inspiring paranoia and alien invasion fears inside of mystery govt organisations, which, in flip, encourage repressive activities opposed to a perceived enemy populace.

...and with murder, as New Orleans mob boss and voudoun queen, Marie Laveau, dies in a hail of gunfire -- and is remade in the course of the wonders of nanotechnology.

In a brand new global that necessity has transfigured -- a thrilling, seething stew of microscopic equipment and genetic engineering; of totalinarianism, eco-terrorism and violence -- Marie Laveau's starvation for vengance is giving solution to anything greater.
For future has named her savior of the outcasts, the opressed, the crazies, the hunted and the Silence's mutant young children, who all flock to her dream of a destiny as candy as an Ellington riff...and a secure haven known as Crescent urban.

A number of new start-up companies have emerged in this area, and more than a dozen annual conferences have been organized to assist emerging nano players, from companies to investors to entrepreneurs, in assessing and evaluating potential business approaches. Venture investors are sponsoring conferences in nanoscale science and technology, and a number of these firms are infusing nanotech start-ups with needed capital. A limited number of venture firms are targeting nanoscale science and technology and related “small science” subjects such as microelectromechanical systems (MEMS), microfluidics, and nanomaterials as focus areas for their future investment.

International collaboration can be in the best interests of national security. S. political, economic, and military interests by 2015. S. participation in international collaborations can lessen the risk that nanoscale technologies are turned against us. Furthermore, by participating in open international collaborations and sharing research results, the United States will demonstrate that these technologies are not being developed for offensive purposes. Opportunities for International Partnership The exchange of ideas on a person-to-person basis is an important form of international collaborations.
