The Thoughtful Animal

And it is over! The submission deadline has just passed. No more submissions will be accepted for the 2010 edition of the Open Laboratory.

I have lined up an impressive list of reviewers who will immediately start receiving their first judging lists and the complex process of winnowing down almost 900 entries into the final 50 essays/stories, one poem, one piece of art (for the cover) and one cartoon/comic strip. As usual, the book will be published with lulu.com and we’ll try to have the book ready roughly in time for ScienceOnline2011 (we always say that, I know, but this time we’ll really try hard!)

In the meantime, while this process is ongoing, you can use this post – this collection of almost 900 links – as a summary of the year, a sample and a cross-section of the best that happened on science blogs over the past twelve months. A snapshot of history! Quite a collection! There’s almost 2 and a half posts for each DAY of the past year!

You can buy the last four annual collections here. You can read Prefaces and Introductions to older editions here.
