Research Blogging Awards 2010

Research Blogging Awards 2010 March 23, 2010

I’d like to thank my my family, my cats, and especially my therapist… Yes, Epiphenom has won an award! It’s a particularly satisfying one, because it’s the Research Blogging Awards– with Epiphenom the winner in the Social Science/Anthropology category.

The Research Blogging Awards are voted for by fellow research bloggers, so it’s doubly satisfying to win. You can listen to a podcast by Dave Munger and Joy More (of Seed Media, who are behind the awards) – and there’s also a transcript if listening’s not your thing.

There’s $50 prize money, which I’ll look to see if they can donate directly to a charity (rather than converting first to sterling). But which charity?

So here’s a chance for readers! I’d like you to nominate/vote for a US charity that you think should get the cash. Not a humanist one – I’m thinking something like Médecins Sans Frontières or Oxfam (OK neither of them are US charities, but they have US affiliation). In other words, a secular charity working on an international scale.

By the way, congratulations to Ed Yong and Not Exactly Rocket Science, who’s walked off with the $1000 award for the Research Blog of the year. It’s a consistently excellent blog, and fully deserves the award!
