Retrospectacle: A Neuroscience Blog

I Made It Into Open Lab 2007! Yay!

Its great to come back from vacation with good news waiting for you. Usually I just come back to school (and my blog) to a build-up of spam, bills, and unwanted catalogs so it was quite a welcome surprise to be notified by Bora that a post of mine will be published in the up-coming book, Open Laboratory 2007. The post that got in was a rather notorious one, but one I’m still proud of, entitled “How Much LSD Does It Take to Kill an Elephant?,” published a few months back. Not bad, considering there were over 450 entries.

The Open Laboratory is a print-published book highlighting the best science blogging on the internet, and is peer-reviewed by a slew of noble volunteers. This year the book will available in book stores and on Amazon in late January, and proceeds go towards funding next year’s Scientific Blogging Conference.

    Congratulations! I love your blog. I became aware of it only a few months ago (maybe 5 or 6) and was immediately hooked. Best wishes!
