ACS features nanotechnology videos

The American Chemical Society's Nanotation division (tagline: "assembling the community of nanoscience") has launched a new video channel on their website. The ACS Nanotation NanoTube gives users the opportunity to create and star in their own videos about nanoscience and nanotechnology.

The site is also currently holding a contest that could net you 500 bucks if you win. Send them your original video answering any of the questions: what is "nano"? How is "nano" best visualized? Where is "nano" headed? Video submissions will be accepted from January 5 - March 15, 2009, must be 3 minutes in length or less, and will be judged on creativity, scientific clarity of explanation, originality and quality of the video. See the contest homepage here.

Here are some videos that have been submitted:
