The Open Laboratory 2008....and 2009?

The Lulu.com page has already been viewed 1160 times, 30 blogs linked to it so far (see the bottom of the announcement post for the list), a very nice number of books (not tellin', sorry) has already been sold, and review copies are on their way to American Scientist, The New Scientist and Seed (I am also expecting a call from Nature as they reviewed the previous two anthologies as well).

The book was the homepage Buzz on Scienceblogs.com the other day - see this for photographic evidence. And the Discover Magazine highlighted it in their March issue - see this.

The guest editor for 2009 will be announced next week so check back here in a few days.

In the meantime, start parsing through your blog archives since December 1st 2008 and start picking your best posts for the next anthology. You can now start submitting your entries via this submission form.

The day before yesterday, my copy of The Open Laboratory 2007, the second annual science blogging anthology, arrived in the mail. So yesterday, Reed and I met at a coffee shop and looked it over. It looks great! Reed knows what he's doing and is a perfectionist, so of course the book looks…
I know you have all been trembling in anticipation! But the day has finally arrived - the third science blogging anthology, The Open Lab 2008, is now up for sale! This year's guest editor, Jennifer Rohn, did a fantastic job of putting together the best anthology ever! Thank you, thank you, thank…

I can't wait to see the reviews. I ordered my copy the other day and am anxiously awaiting for it to arrive in the mail.
