In 2006, Bora Zivkovic brought us the first edition of Open Laboratory, a print collection of the best science blogging of the year. Now in its 4th year, the 2009 edition, guest edited by scicurious at Neurotopia is going to press soon. A record 760 posts were nominated, winnowed down to fifty by scicurious and her panel of judges.
One post of mine (The Pressure to Preserve) will be included! While you're waiting for this edition to come out, I heartily recommend browsing the earlier editions. Who says scientists can't write?
