El Naschie is not a nanotechnologist in any sense


Here's a new video uploaded by YouTube user wafdchannels on March 1. The length is 3:23 and it shows a TV program to which El Naschie phones in an interview. In Arabic without subtitles. The description is "النشائي لا اثق في زويل..asf " or "El Naschie has no confidence in Zewail -- asf".

El Naschie's strategy for the election, I think, is to ingratiate himself with every faction, and hope that whoever wins awards him a cabinet appointment, e.g., Minister for Higher Education and Scientific Research. This could put him in a position to create problems for Zewail City for Science and Technology.

In this video, as always, El Naschie presents himself as an expert in nanotechnology. But he isn't. He has never worked in a nanotechnology lab in any commercial or academic setting. The following four papers are the sum total of his publication record on nanotechnology, according to Google Scholar.

M.S. El Naschie, Superstrings, entropy and the elementary particles content of the standard model, Chaos, Solitons & Fractals, Volume 29, Issue 1, July 2006, Pages 48–54. This is meaningless numerological twaddle that mentions nanotechnology fleetingly.

M.S. El Naschie, The fractal dimension of spacetime—remarks on theoretical derivation and experimental verification, Chaos, Solitons & Fractals, Volume 9, Issue 7, July 1998, Pages 1211–1217. More woo-woo nonsense like the above.

M.S. El Naschie, Chaos and Fractals in Nano and Quantum Technology, Chaos, Solitons & Fractals, Volume 9, Number 10, 1 October 1998 , Pages 1793-1802. This is another worthless E-infinity paper with no substantive nanotechnology content, written while the great man was impersonating a Cambridge University physicist.

and finally the most important one

M.S. El Naschie, Nanotechnology for the developing world, Chaos, Solitons & Fractals, Volume 30, Pages 769-773, 2006. This is embedded below.

Nanotechnology for Developing World

As you see it's a policy paper with no scientific content. Even the references are absurd. He cites four textbooks, a newspaper article, one of his own CSF articles, and the laughable Birthday Book.

These four wretched papers were all published in CSF while he was editor-in-chief, and accordingly were unsullied by the "childish, vain practice of peer review".

This dismal oeuvre is the basis on which El Naschie is called a "famous nanotechnology scientist" in the Egyptian media.
