The Wolves are Loosed
Jim sent this letter to Dr. Whitesides at Harvard a few years ago. Since then he has been field testing some inventions that the professor has been working on.

My name is Jim Broadstreet and I work as a photographer for National Geographic. Recently I read a piece in Smithsonian Magazine (http://www.smithsonianmag.com/specialsections/40th-anniversary/Can-Nanotechnology-Save-Lives.html) about your work in nanotechnology. I found many interesting facets to your work. I am currently involved in a project which presents me with many interesting situations. I had several ideas about how some of the new technology and these situations may present your team with opportunities to test your equipment or gather data. I believe that some of the human powered projects utilizing nanowires might benefit from my testing as well as some of the nanostructure work.
I have worked with Professor Jones from the Archeology Department of the College of William and Mary in Williamsburg. He can give you more information about the project and potential testing scenarios. He can also supply information about previous projects I have undertaken for him.
If you or your group is interested in working with me please contact my production assistant Warrent Nbutu at the National Geographic headquarters in Washington.
Thank you for your time and consideration,
Dr. Whitesides sent Jim a package at the hotel in San Fransisco on the 10th of October for him to test.
