Improbable Research blog a finalist for 2008 Best Science Blog

2008 Weblog Award finalist badgeWe are proud (and surprised!) that we’ve been named a finalist—for Best Science Blog—in the 2008 Weblog Awards (“the world’s largest blog competition” say the organizers). Thanks to the many investigators who send us tips and detritus, and special thanks to whoever nominated us

Voting is open now and will be so until Monday, January 12, 2009 at 5:00 p.m. Eastern.

Please vote (for us, or for a less improbable blog), and please spread the word.

[UPDATE: The award organizers apparently encourage well-paced ballot-stuffing. The voting page encourages people to vote “once every 24 hours in each category”.]
