Two of my Hive Overmind Discover Magazine co-bloggers took home the top two awards from Three Quark Daily's science blogging contest: Carl Zimmer of The Loom, and our new blogger Ed Yong of Not Exactly Rocket Science. They both wrote about interbreeding of sorts, clearly pandering to the judge, squishy science advocate Richard Dawkins. OK, seriously, this is very cool. It's nice to see science blogging get recognized (some major web awards still don't have a science category), very nice to see good science blogging get recognized, and very very nice that two of the three awards went to folks here at Discover. When I first moved my blog to Discover a couple of years ago now, I wasn't sure how it would go, but I trusted the brand and the people at the magazine. This was clearly a good decision -- I'm happy here, and I'm really proud of Carl and Ed. They deserved those awards... and I bet we'll be seeing a few more coming this way over time. We have an excellent group of writers here, and I suspect Discover Magazine will be a force among online science journalism and opinion writing for a long, long time to come.
