Beck Tench, here, your friendly NISE Net Online Community Manager. I'll be blogging NanoDays report results as they come in over the next couple of months and visualizing that data so that we can better understand how NanoDays played out across the country. (By the way, don't forget to submit your report by May 1st to be entered into a drawing for a free ASTC registration and travel stipend.)
