Nature Network bloggers among the best!

Nature Network bloggers have made a strong showing in the anthology of the best science blog posts of 2008, Open Laboratory (click here to see the 2007 edition).

A panel of science blogger-judges (headed up by our own Jenny Rohn acting as this year’s editor) pored over hundreds nominations and selected the 50 best posts, six of which were written by Nature Network bloggers! They are (drum roll, please):

“I get my kicks from thermodynamicks!”

from Reciprocal Space

by Stephen Curry

“Someone should invent a device to look at the micro world”

by Charles Darwin

“On the hardness of biology”

from The End of the Pier Show

by Henry Gee

“On the nature of networking”

from The Scientist

by Richard Grant

“Poster session paparazzi”

from Nothing’s Shocking

“In which science becomes a sport – hypothetically speaking”

from Mind the Gap

by Jennifer Rohn

You can find links to all 52 winners (50 posts, one cartoon and one poem) here.

The editors and winners are busy compiling the posts to be published later this month as a book for purchase on
