The Open Lab 2007

By Phil Plait | January 2, 2008 11:07 am

A few weeks ago (last year now!) I mentioned that I was submitting some of my blog entries for The Open Lab, a book compendium of the best science blog posts from 2007.

I am very pleased to announce that I got in! The post they chose was Happy New Year Arbitrary Orbital Marker (technically, that was posted in 2006, so shhhh!), which I recently and coincidentally just reposted a few days ago. :-)

The complete list of winning entries is listed over at Bora’s place, A Blog Around the Clock. It looks like a pretty good selection, but I think I’ll hold off reading them all online; the book will be coming out very shortly, and will be available on When that’s set, I’ll let y’all know.

    Nice job, Phil. I may disagree with you now and then, but I do digs yer little site here.

    I really have to get my own blog thing going.

    I once considered “Bad Politics” but it seemed like a full time job for a team of 1000 bloggers, not to mention a redundant title.

  4. That was the one I suggested! Sweet.

    It took me a whole nychthemeron to get my head around that post.
