Hearty congratulations to Ed Yong, fellow Discover blogger, for winning this year's online National Academies Communication Award. I serve as a judge for the awards, so I told the NAS folks I would have to sit this particular vote out this year, seeing that a fellow member of the Discover hivemind was in the running. From the sidelines, I was very pleased to see him win. Ed's torrent of well-researched blog posts on natural history give the lie (again) that blogging isn't serious journalism. Congratulations as well to Richard Holmes for his wonderful book, Age of Wonder, Charles Duhigg for his deep exploration of our water woes, and Carole and Richard Rifkind, co-producers and co-directors of the show, “Naturally Obsessed: The Making of a Scientist." Full details at NAS.
