It’s come to my attention that the polymath blog 3quarksdaily has announced its second annual prize in science blogging, which will be judged this year by none other than Richard Dawkins. Prizes include fame, glory, and actual cash money, apparently. I’ve already self-nominated “Dethroning the Red Queen?”, but other parties who enjoy D&T are (ahem) free to nominate additional posts. Following Nerdy Christie’s lead, allow me to suggest a few other posts with which I’m well pleased:
- “First step to mutualism doesn’t look so friendly”, posted 12 October 2009
- “How to synchronize flowering without really trying”, posted 26 October 2009
- “For yucca moths, does (flower) size matter?”, posted 2 December 2009
- “Evolving from plant pathogen to symbiont”, posted 19 January 2010
Or you’re free to nominate anything posted since 23 May, 2009. Any given person can only make one nomination, though, so choose carefully.
