Announcing the Guest Editor for Open Lab 2009!

And the winner is….
Yup! Scicurious will be the guest editor of Open Lab 2009! I’m super thrilled to be involved, and it’s a big honor to be asked to do something like this, especially because it means I’ll be buried typing-fingers deep in the best science blogging to be found!
For those not in the know, Open Lab is a yearly, printed-on-the-flesh-and-blood-of-real-trees version of the best that science blogging has to offer. All submissions will be evaluated by a jury of fellow science bloggers, and the top 50 will be selected for publication. The end result is a wonderful compilation of the greats in science blogging, and is a rare note of permanence in internet world, where nothing last more than about 15 minutes. If you are curious to see, Sci recommends that you check out the new and shiny Open Lab 2008, because she’s in it.
And so, I hereby open up for 2009 submissions! To submit a post for Open Lab, please go to this submission form. You can nominate as many posts as you wish, and Sci encourages you to have no shame about nominating yourself. But keep in mind that posts must date no earlier than Dec. 1, 2008.
So start submitting! And also…just in case…Sci would like to point out that she is not judging, and so if you wanted to submit anything of HERS…just sayin’.

  13. Thanks, everyone!
    And DNLee: I DID think very hard of putting up a squirrel, but I’m so totally a rat!

  14. Yay! Well done! *applause*

  15. Well deserved, congratulations!

  16. Congrats 🙂 and good luck!

  17. Honor? You people have this wrong.
    This is nothing other than recognition of the sustained and superlative blogging that we’ve been enjoying from scicuriuos over the past year or so. SciC clearly puts serious effort into thinking about not just the fascinating science she relates but also how to best communicate this to a diverse audience. I can think of none better to shepherd the next edition of Open Lab.
    Well deserved, sciC!

  18. wtg sci! w00t!

  19. What DM said. This was a carefully made decision and I think I picked the best! It is the recognition of Sci’s amazing writing talent and communication skills. I am looking forward to the year of collaboration with Sci on this project.
    Now, start submitting your posts, and don’t forget to send in original poems, comic strips, cartoons and art as well as essays.

  20. I echo DM’s sentiments. OpenLab is lucky to be edited by SciC, not the other way round.
    Looking forward to see how Abel decides to flay himself for the education of the world this year.
