Openlab 2007

Openlab 2007

We are now taking submissions for Openlab 2007, the science blogging anthology.—Bora has the story.—Bora was very successful in putting together Openlab 2006, and I have joined him in editing the 2007 edition. Together we will be putting together a list of worthy posts, and sending the list out for judging/review next December. Only this time we will get started in compiling the list in March instead of at the last minute in December.

With the help of Anton Zuiker, we have put together a submission form on Wufoo for the nomination of worthy blog posts. You can make as many nominations as you’d like, but don’t go crazy because we still have to review all submissions. Any original blog entry made between 12-20-06 and 12-20-07 is eligible.

If you want to spread the word, I have put together a badge that you can use to link to the submission form. Feel free to copy the below code into a sidebar on your blog. I am working with the Wufoo people to put together a Movable Type template that can automatically complete some of the information in the nomination form. So for instance, you can include it in all your entries and encourage your readers to nominate good posts of yours.

I have also put together a badge for all the 2006 winners to place on their blogs. I’m hoping that most 2006 winners will also place a 2007 badge on their blogs as well.
