Nominate your favorite physics website for an award!

physics.org_logoKnow a physics website you love?

The Institute of Physics website is holding their first ever physics web awards! If there’s a site you like, you can nominate it to win in several categories, including:

* Best blog
* Best news site / online magazine
* Best podcast
* Best Q&A / ask the expert site
* Best revision site
* Best kids’ site
* President’s prize (anything which doesn’t fall under any of the categories above)

As it happens, I was asked to be a judge for the "Best ask the expert / Q&A site", no doubt because of my inexhaustible ability to obfuscate on matters scientific. Bribery and flattery will get you nowhere, but a site with fun, accurate, easy-to-understand answers certainly will! Other judges include my friends Gia Milinovich, (the Hive Overmind’s own) Amos Zeeberg, Alom Shaha (whom you may remember from the Science Is Important video effort), and astronomer-who-discovered-pulsars Jocelyn Bell-Burnell.

Nominations are open now, and close on October 10. So go through your bookmarks and start submitting!

    Darn, the only blog I regular read is yours, Phil.
    Wouldn’t mind looking at some physics blogs.

    I just can’t lower myself to honor psychics like Silvia Browne or John Edward.

    Oh, you mean physics! That’s a great idea. Thanks a bunch for the info.

    How strictly is the word “physics” defined? Do blogs dealing with astrophysics (like, well occassionally, this one) qualify? 😉
