Additional recommended knowledge
"Nanosocialism" is a term coined by David M. Berube, a professor of speech communication studies at the University of South Carolina, Columbia, and the associate director of Nanoscience and Technology Studies at the USC NanoCenter, who argues that nanotechnological projections need to be tempered by realism about the implications of nanotechnology in a technocapitalist society, but that its applications also offer enormous opportunities for economic abundance and social progress.
Sociologist James Hughes has identified nanosocialism as a current within the democratic transhumanist ideology and movement.
Nanosocialism in fiction
In the role-playing game Transhuman Space, nanosocialism is described as a descendant of infosocialism, in which intellectual property is nationalized and distributed by the state. It is adopted by some developing nations to counter the hold corporations from wealthier nations have on copyrights and patents. This fictional version of nanosocialism was coined by David L. Pulver, the game's creator, who was unaware that the term had already been used by Berube.
