This article is mostly taken from the Foresight Institute's "About Us" web page. Wikipedia articles shouldn't really be mouthpieces for companies. Does this organization actually do anything other than organize conferences? Tempshill 21:45, 18 Nov 2003 (UTC)
Currently, the link to the FI's website does not work.

I think this page should be kept, although in a slightly more sophisticated way.
I have attempted to rewrite the page and have trimmed out things like the mission statement-like list and the doublespeak comment about the internet. By no means is this page perfect, but I think it no longer reads like an advertisment. Falcon 22:51, 10 June 2006 (UTC)
This may be part of a walled garden of pages, including Chris Phoenix & Mike Treder. The COI and NPOV of all three is suspect, and their are 3rd party sources for their being a concealed POV-pushing advocacy group.
- I intend to document a little more thoroughly, and rewrite the article for the center as NPOV.
Should be kept

The article says "In 2005 the Foresight Institute changed its name to 'Foresight Institute' and narrowed its mission to nanotechnology". The website does indeed focus on nanotech now, but still refers to the organization as "Foresight Institute". What is the source for the claim about the name change (and if it is correct, then why is this article still called "Foresight Institute")? —Adam Atlas (talk) 05:00, 17 September 2010 (UTC)
- I also looked at the website and I don't see "Foresight Nanotech Institute" anywhere, though you're right that there are many mentions of nanotechnology. However I do see the term elsewhere. My guess is that they changed their name and then changed it back. We could change the text something more vague, but equally accurate, such as "...also known as 'Foresight Nanotech Institute'..."
