It has just been announced that my fellow Scibling Ed Yong of Not Exactly Rocket Science has been voted the winner of the 2010 Research Blogging Awards. In addition to being voted as Best Blog of the Year he has additionally been selected for having the Best Lay-Level Blog and for having written the Best Post of the Year (for duck sex). He deserves our praise and admiration for the incredible and tireless work he’s been doing for many years to communicate science in an informative and entertaining way. I’m thrilled to have been nominated in the same category as him and I encourage everyone to make Not Exactly Rocket Science one of their daily reads. Congratulations Ed!
