Pick your favorite science site for the Physics.orgs awards!

By Phil Plait | October 25, 2010 9:30 am

physics.org_logoThe site Physics.org is holding a 2010 award contest for science/physics websites! I wrote about this before; since then they’ve closed nominations and have short-listed five sites for each of the categories, including best blog, best online magazine, and so on.

They asked me to judge the "Best ask the expert / Q&A site" and I can see my work’s cut out for me.

But you can join in: beside those of the judges, they also want the public’s opinion: there’s a Peoples Choice award in each category as well. All you have to do is register with the Physics.org website, and then submit your vote. The polls close on Sunday, November 7.

There are lots of good entries, and at the very least you can take a look to see what sciencey sites are out there you may not know about.

  1. Is the voting just selecting the star rating? I did the registration and everything, and that was the only method that I saw right off (as well as the instructions), but I wanted to leave a comment about how much a certain ginger astronomer is the best in the world, and should win.

    My vote for best Q&A site is Physics Forums. I’ve been a member there for a while now, and I really like having access to so many experts.
