J. Storrs Hall

John Storrs Hall is regarded as one of the most significant thinkers in the field of molecular nanotechnology. He founded the sci.nanotech Usenet newsgroup and moderated it for ten years, and served as the founding chief scientist of Nanorex Inc. for two years. He has written several papers on nanotechnology and developed several ideas such as the Utility fog, the Space Pier and a novel flying car. 

Dr. Hall is the author of Nanofuture: What's Next for Nonotechnology (ISBN 1-59102-287-8), fellow of the Molecular Engineering Research Institute and Research Fellow of the Institute for Molecular Manufacturing.

Hall was also a computer systems architect at the Laboratory for Computer Science Research at Rutgers University from 1985 until 1997.

Though he refers to himself as Josh or JoSH online, his name is not Josh Hall. Josh is a contraction.

Dr. Hall is something of a poet and has composed verse (concerning nanotechnology) in the style of Dr. Seuss ("How The Schmirk Stole Nanotechnology") and Clement Clarke Moore ("A Visit from Saint Assembler").

In 2006, the Foresight Nanotech Institute awarded Hall the Feynman Communication prize.[1]
