I know that you all are dying to begin collecting the Open Lab anthologies, so I wanted to let you know that this is still possible because the inaugural edition, Open Laboratory 2006: The Best Science Writing in the Blogosphere, is still available for you to purchase. The funds raised from the sale of this volume support the Annual Science Blog Conference, which is held in North Carolina. You can purchase this book either as a electronic download ($8.69) or as a hard copy ($19.95).
The 2007 edition of this anthology will be available on amazon.com a couple of weeks after it is published by Lulu.com, after it has been assigned its ISBN and has passed through the process of being added to Amazon’s extensive book sales list. I will add a link to the book’s Amazon page after it is available through this venue (remember; if you purchase something from Amazon after clicking on an Amazon link from my blog, I receive 1% of your total purchase price as a “reward”, at no additional cost to you).
