A Blog Around The Clock

The deadline for submission of blog posts for the 2nd Science Blogging Anthology is over. We have received 468 entries (after deleting spam and duplicates – the total was 501) and a jury of 30+ judges has already started reading and grading the entries. We truly believe that we will have the book ready and printed by the time the 2nd Science Blogging Conference starts, on January 18th-19th, so both the participants and you at home will be able to order your copy at that time.

Here are all the entries for you to enjoy and comment on – let me know if something is missing or I got a link wrong, etc., and do not hesitate to voice your opinion in the comments here:

    I think it would make more sense if you put the list itself under the “fold.” This one post is several percent of my science RSS feed this morning.

  2. #2 Coturnix
    December 21, 2007

    Sorry. It was a tough decision to make. But I really wanted to give link love to all of these folks and to make sure their posts get read and get seen by various search engines, etc. It will go off RSS screens soon.

  3. #3 sparc
    December 21, 2007

    As much as I appreciate ScienceBlogs and although I suggested some posts to be included I don’t understand why you want to have the stuff printed. The list of links is sufficient for me.

  4. #4 Coturnix
    December 21, 2007

    The target audience are not bloggers. The intended buyers/readers are people who are barely online, yet are interested in science. They may have heard of the word “blog”, most likely in a negative sense, from some disgruntled journalist who rants about the “unwashed masses” and the “unreliable bloggers”. Folks who will buy “Best science essays of the year”, meaning essays from NYTimes and Scientific American, edited by others. We want to show them that there is good stuff written on science blogs, just as good if not better than what appears in newspapers and magazines, and that they should buy computers, get online and join in the conversation with all of us here.

  5. #5 Reed A. Cartwright
    December 21, 2007

    Bora, your list is probably different than mine. I went through and deleted several urls that were from before 2006/12. Effect Measure lost several submissions, for example.

  6. #6 Coturnix

    Oh, I did not notice that. I’ll check later.

    sparc:

    The only people that I know who read blogs are the people that I force to read my blog, like my wife and child and a couple of friends. But most of my friends won’t talk to me any more or have moved out of state, one to Australia. And I”m only slightly exaggerating.

    Also, there is a very different experience in reading on line vs. on paper. This is an interesting phenomenon … the Open Lab project … because it sees the transformation of the same material from one medium to another, and in fact, in the direction the material usually does not go in.
