WE DID IT!! Daniel won! Congratulations!
I have to say a huge thank-you to everyone who read this blog-post : Make Your Nominations For The UK Skeptic Awards 2011 (With A Blatant Request)
…and then sent in a vote for the best science video clip on the web – by Daniel Keogh: The Strange Powers of the Placebo Effect. WIN!
Science smart-arse, creative dolt and general loon. Former reporter for ABC TVs Hungry Beast and Radio Nationals Science Show. Brave enough to investigate the weird, sexy, stupid and sometimes controversial side of science.
This is the winning video, featured after I interviewed him for the Token Skeptic podcast – Episode Thirty – On Science Communication, Hungry Beasts And Professor Funk An Interview With Daniel Keogh – and the video itself is in the podcast stream (and you can download it here, as well as watch it on YouTube):
Yay to QEDCon and the judges, this is a great win and I’m very proud of Professor Funk and Luke Harris! If you’re interested in learning more about Daniel, check out his YouTube channel and follow him on Twitter at @professorfunk.
Congratulations also in order to the Pod Delusion – I’ve contributed to them twice in the past and they are a fine group of people who encourage contributors globally to take part. Go check them out too!
