3 Quarks Daily Science Blogging Prize

Each year, 3 Quarks Daily sponsors prizes for blogging in different areas: science, arts & literature, politics and social science, and philosophy. This year, the excitement surrounding the science prize will be even greater than usual, since it will be judged by me! Previous judges include Stephen Pinker, Richard Dawkins, and Lisa Randall. Not sure what their qualifications were, I don't think any of them have a blog. (Well, Lisa did guest-blog for us.) Maybe they have had productive careers as scientists or something. I will do my best to live up to the lofty standards of the previous judges. Please help the contest along by spreading the word, and submitting your favorite posts. And yes -- you're perfectly welcome to submit things you've written yourself. Entries close June 9, so don't delay!
