The Nobel Prize in Medicine has been awarded to Elizabeth Blackburn, Carol Greider, and Jack Szostak for “for the discovery of how chromosomes are protected by telomeres and the enzyme telomerase.” Who’s HI, you ask? HI is the commenter who picked Blackburn and Greider in the official Uncertain Principles betting pool.

Congratulations to Blackburn, Greider, and Szostak, who get to split about a million dollars. And Congratulations to HI, who gets the right to author two! guest posts on this blog. Send me an email from the address you left in the comment form, HI, and we’ll get this set up.
