My post, “I want to be Carl Sagan, but can’t,” has been selected for Open Lab 2009, the annual best of science blogging anthology. Competition is fierce (final list of 760 nominations here), and I’m more than a bit surprised to have managed to get something included for a second year in a row. I am, as they say in Australia, chuffed.
Additional: And here’s the final list of those fortunate fifty that made the cut. Two posts my bio writing students short-listed made it in (You aren’t what your mother eats and Sleep paralysis). Plus, I see a few things I nominated also made it in. (No, I’m not saying which ones, because they may well have been nominated by other people.)
