has been released by NanoApex - one of the Internet’s
leading resources for information about nanotechnology.
(PRWEB) March 30, 2005 -- Grey
Goos (www.nanoinvestornews.com/goo.php), the first
comic strip developed for the nanotechnology community,
has been released by leading Nanotechnology portal
NanoApex. The weekly cartoon, currently in its fourth
episode, examines the lighter side of nanotechnology
and brings a diverse global audience together through
its wry, but relevant humor.
"Nanotechnology can sometimes
feel intimidating,” said Grey Goos creator Joel Fisher.
“We wanted to put a friendly face on the technology—humanize
it, give people a chuckle.” Grey Goos has already
generated some positive attention in technology circles.
"The first time I saw the cartoon I immediately
sent it to everyone in my office," said Jon Nowick,
a programmer with HSI Technology in Chicago. "The
humor is insightful enough for techno-savvy readers
like me and light enough to hang on an office refrigerator,"
The Grey Goos cartoon is produced
by APOKOLIPSTIK, Inc., an entrepreneurial company
dedicated to developing nano-age comic strips and
graphic literature. This Nano-Comic is building a
global fan base and attracting readers from the US,
UK, China and India and is generating interest in
Nanotechnology through humor.
About the Grey Goos Comic
In the Grey Goos comic, a group of "nanobots"
dubbed “Grey Goos” have escaped from the National
Transistor Assembly Labs. Each with a different technical
specialty and a distinct personality, they end up
in a New York City loft with Dorothea (Dot) Kalm and
Globo Bill, a couple of “constructs” who also have
escaped from the same lab. Meanwhile, scientists at
the lab have created a nanocop they’ve named Blue
Goo, whose job is to round up the wayward Grey Goos
and return them to the lab. What happens next is "a
lot of fun" said Joel Fisher. The strip is currently
being offered exclusively by NanoApex, one of the
