The Editor of the 2009 edition of the Open Laboratory print anthology of science-oriented blogging, SciCurious of Neurotopia, has announced the selected posts from last year's science blogospheric efforts. I own two of the prior editions of the anthology, so obviously I'm a big fan. As an additional disclaimer, I was asked to review as subset of the 760 nominated posts this year.
I won't steal all of SciC's fire, and the selections are all excellent, but I did want to note a couple of my own favorites to get you in the mood...
Breastatistics, by Dr. Jekyll and Mrs. Hyde.
The Weird History of Vaccine Adjuvants by Neuron Culture.
Academia: slowing down the search for cures? at Respectful Insolence.
It's official: we really have saved the ozone layer, at Highly Allocthonous.
The rightful place of the science and the African-American community from the Young Black Professional Guide.
Impediments to dialogue about animal research, parts 2, 3, and 4 from Adventures in Ethics and Science.
