Nominations open for the 3 Quarks Daily prize in science blogging

By Ed Yong | May 27, 2010 12:05 pm

3quarksdailyThe excellent blog 3 Quarks Daily have opened nominations for their second Prize in Science. This, year, the prize will be judged by Richard Dawkins and there will be three winners.

If any of you would like to nominate a post from Not Exactly Rocket Science for this prestigious award, I would obviously be very grateful. Here’s how:

  • Place the URL for the blog post of your choice in the comments section of this post. You may also add a brief comment describing the entry and saying why you think it should win.
  • Each of you can only nominate one blog post.
  • The post must have been written after May 23, 2009, which gives you around 250 to choose from.
  • Nominations are limited to the first 200 entries so get in there quickly.
  • Try not to choose duck sex. That’s been done ;-)

Thanks folks.

    oooh, tough choice!

    but after a painstaking review process, i have decided to nominate this entry for the 3 Quarks Daily Prize in Science:

    http://blogs.discovermagazine.com/notrocketscience/2009/09/29/the-evolution-of-the-past-tense-how-verbs-change-over-time/

    …because it talks about two of my fave subjects – evolution and linguistics – and the writing here was elegant and eminently understandable (and yes, i think dr. dawkins would dig the subject matter).

    just so any further posters don’t make the same mistake as us internet-challenged types, we post the appropriate link here…

    Hey, you started this! I was just too busy to explore the options. ANYWAY

    I did post my nomination at three quarks as well, I thought we were posting them in this thread so people did not nominate the same post multiple times.

    Ah whoops, my bad DB. I didn’t realise that the 3QD post had a second page of comments.

  7. This web page can be a stroll-via for the entire info you needed about this and didn’t know who to ask. Glimpse here, and also you’ll definitely uncover it.
