Know a physics website you love? The Institute of Physics website physics.org is holding their first ever physics web awards! If there's a site you like, you can nominate it to win in several categories, including:

* Best blog * Best news site / online magazine * Best podcast * Best Q&A / ask the expert site * Best revision site * Best kids’ site * President’s prize (anything which doesn’t fall under any of the categories above)

As it happens, I was asked to be a judge for the "Best ask the expert / Q&A site", no doubt because of my inexhaustible ability to obfuscate on matters scientific. Bribery and flattery will get you nowhere, but a site with fun, accurate, easy-to-understand answers certainly will! Other judges include my friends Gia Milinovich, (the Hive Overmind's own) Amos Zeeberg, Alom Shaha (whom you may remember from the Science Is Important video effort), and astronomer-who-discovered-pulsars Jocelyn Bell-Burnell. Nominations are open now, and close on October 10. So go through your bookmarks and start submitting!
