3quarksdaily.com, a website whose editors “present interesting items from around the web on a daily basis, in the areas of science, design, literature, current affairs, art, and anything else [they] deem inherently fascinating”, has launched its first of four annual best blog prizes. This maiden edition of the award, The 3QD Prize in Science 2009, purports in fact to elect the best entry in a science blog.
Nominations will remain open until June 1st. If you wish to nominate a blog entry, all you have to do is go to the bottom of this page and post a comment containing (in the body of the comment) the URL of your favourite blog entry, with or without some brief accompanying remarks about what motivated your choice.
After the end of the nomination period, everyone will have the opportunity to vote on their favorite.
- June 1st, 2009: The nominating process will end at midnight (NYC time) of this date (so there are very few days left to participate in this phase of the process!). At some point on this day, the public voting will be opened.
- June 8th, 2009: Public voting ends at midnight (NYC time).
- June 21st, 2009: The winners are announced.
Other practical infos, gleaned from the 3QD website:
- Anything written between May 24th 2008 and now is eligible for nomination.
- Between June 8th and June 21st, Stephen Pinker will select the winning entry from six finalists.
And now the most important part: if you like this blog, YOU can nominate one my posts....
