Living the Scientific Life (Scientist, Interrupted)

The current Antarctic Trip Vote count is as follows; 436 – 377 – 170 – 145 – 138 out of 167 candidates registered.

If you’ve already voted, then please encourage your family, friends, colleagues and neighbors to vote for the person whom you think would be best for this unique job: traveling to Antarctica for the month of February 2010 and writing about it for the public on a blog. Here is my 300-word essay. Voting ends 30 September and there is one vote allowed per valid email address (registration required).

    OHHHH no!!!!!!!!!
    The next guy has caught up it’s now neck and neck 470 each – everyone has to get everyone they know to vote.
    We should send a scientist and if GrrlScientist takes a Scientist along we’ll get two for the price of one!!
