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.

    Cool, nice work Phil. That post filled my head with way more information about the ‘year’ than I ever needed or wanted to know. Thanks. ;)

    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.
