I'm thrilled to have a piece of mine in this year's edition of Best of American Science Writing. The book, edited by Rebecca Skloot and her father Floyd, is officially published on Tuesday, 9/27, but you can order it now on Amazon. My semi-skeptical take on the Singularity is in there, as is lots of excellent stuff--including fellow Discover blogger Ed Yong's tale of sushi genes in Japanese gut bugs. If I'm not mistaken, that's the first time a blog post has made it into this series. So congratulations to Ed Yong for giving the old blogs-versus-journalism critics another reason to pull their hair out.
