Finalist in the 3QD Science Prize

This post is purely to brag: the editors of the blog 3 Quarks Daily have selected the seven finalists for their 2009 Science Prize, and Daylight Atheism is among them!

My post “Bands of Iron” is one of the seven that will be sent to 3QD’s celebrity judge, Steven Pinker, who will pick the ultimate winner in one week’s time. Whether I win or not, it’s an honor to have made it this far out of so many initial competitors. My deepest thanks, again, to everyone who voted for me! I’ll be sure to keep you updated on what transpires.

    Congrats on getting this far (he says smugly, having voted for “Bands of Iron”….)

  • Lynet

  • Juan Felipe

    Ironically, isn’t that the one that got the less number of votes?

  • 2-D Man

    Ebon, Ebon, Ebon! If you’re trying to be vain, you should at least display the trophy that they’ve given you:

    Once again, South Tyrolean graphic artist Carla Goller has provided a “trophy” logo that our seven finalists may choose to display on their own blogs.

    You’re not very good at this whole bragging thing ;).

    All the same, congratulations and best of luck!

    Nifty! Congratulations! It took all my self-restraint not to cheat and vote for this post multiple times on every different computer I use. I’m so glad you won this fair and square. You totally deserve it.
