UPDATE: Broken links fixed!
UPDATE2: Oops — It looks like the deadline is actually Tuesday at midnight. You can still submit if you like, but the organizers ask you don’t submit anything that’s already listed here. Thanks! : )
Hi everyone. Sorry this is a bit last-minute, but I didn’t realize the deadline for this was upon us. The Open Laboratory is a dead tree book containing “The Best Writing on Science Blogs”, and YOU can nominate posts for it. The deadline for this is Nov. 30 (i.e. Monday) at midnight, which I just learned thanks to a gracious post by Psi Wavefunction. If you particularly enjoyed any of my posts this year, consider nominating one for the book. They do stipulate
Make sure that the submitted posts are possible (and relatively easy) to convert into print. Posts that rely too much on video, audio, color photographs, copyrighted images, or multitudes of links just won’t do.
which is unfortunate, because I try to make an effort for every post to include video, audio, color photographs, and multitudes of links. Isn’t that what writing for the web is about? Still, please consider nominating anything you particularly enjoyed. It’s fast and easy to do right here.
Posts that might be suitable include Moss that Swings Both (All?) Ways and its sequel, The Six Million Dollar Moss: Why Biology is WAY Cooler than Nuclear Physics, More Bad News for Bats: Marburg Virus Edition, and When Plesiosaurs Ruled the Sea, but really, knock yourself out if you have a particular favorite.
