Must Enter to Win

by Jennifer Frazer on May 27, 2011

UPDATE: Voting is open now here. Please consider voting for my bombardier beetles post!

As usual, Three Quarks Daily is having their annual science blogging contest, judged this year by physics babe (and yes, I know I’m perpetuating stereotypes here) Lisa Randall. I’m not very good at self-promotion. But as Ed Yong recently admonished, it’s important to enter science writing contests, and this one happens to require a little self promotion.

You can nominate one and only one blog post in the contest, and if you choose to do so, it must be a post written between May 22, 2010 and midnight on May 31, 2011 (the deadline for entries). If you choose to nominate me, you can select anything you like, but here are a few of my favorites. This is also a great opportunity to catch some of my favorite posts that you might have missed over the last year:

One nomination for one post is sufficient, so if you see in the comments at 3QD your favorite post already entered, it’s taken care of for now. You can nominate another post (by me or anyone else) instead if you wish. But having too many posts nominated might split the vote, so if you don’t feel so moved, please don’t feel you need to nominate. Once the nominations are in, there will be a voting stage to cull the top 20 entries.  I’ll let you know when that happens, should you like to vote for me. Danke schoen!

Great blog. I was looking at your viral micrographs. If you take a filamentous particle and section it in cross section you will see a sphere. Has anyone measured the sphere in cross section? I did some work with Dr. Fred Prince at NY Blood Center a long time ago. We had inclusions in cells infected with Hepatitis that would appear as parallel rods in one plane but round in another. If you think of a test tube sectioned in two different planes you can visualize what we were looking at.
Nice Blog
