I think it's safe to assume that this newsgroup is dead. Most ISP's no longer
provide Usenet and there are few alternatives left.

What's a good replacement for the newsgroup? Do people still discuss
Nanotechnology? If so, where?

It seems like nearly everybody is on Facebook these days. Would that be a good
place to move this group?

You might be interested in the Transhumanist news mailing list:

They have occasional Nanotech items; but it's all good.

No, not that one.

I am new to this, and I m very passionate to connect biomedical engineering and
nanotechnology. If you know where we can actually move,,please contact me.

Sadly I don't know any such website (I have searched quite a lot with
intentions similar to yours).
There is a lot of comments on Drexler's blog, though.
Also, people still discuss molecular nanotechnology in nanoengineer-dev, group
devoted to development of nanoengineer-1 - molecular CAD.

I think that such forum should be created, if there is demand for it to exist.

I'm willing to help fund and/or create a lightly moderated nanotechnology
web forum.

The main problem with blogs is that the blogger pretty much dictates the
main topics - and the blog is centered on the blogger. And the problem with
some of the other discussion groups is that their focus is often just a bit
too narrow to encompass all the topics people want to discuss.

If anyone still checking in on this newsgroup is interested in discussing
this, feel free to post here or contact me directly via email at
Jam...@Lugoj.com

Selection of a domain name, choice of web forum software, where to host,
and how to get the word out about the existence of such a forum once it is
started are some of the basic things that need to be worked out.

Jim
