The third edition of The Open Laboratory 2008, a compilation of the best science-related blog posts of last year, is now available for purchase in the Lulu Marketplace. The book was started by ScienceBlogger Bora Zivkovic in 2006 as a way to lend credibility to the new media form of blogging and package it in a way that is accessible both online and off. “This book was produced communally with people submitting over 800 posts, other bloggers reading and judging them, bloggers editing them, bloggers designing the cover and typeset, and bloggers publishing it – Yes We Can!” Bora said in an interview. The proceeds from the book series fund the ScienceOnline conferences, where science bloggers from around the world meet up to discuss the future of this quickly-growing medium of communication.
