Sciblogging Anthology
Coturnix has posted the results of his Science-blogging anthology. A pretty impressive effort for sure. He managed to get nominations for best scienceblog writing over the last year, peer review them, rank them, and publish them through Lulu all in about 3 weeks. It's available for download or purchase at lulu.com

Good job man!

Eh. What we really need is to cut down a few more trees because The Google may go down.

Listen, I'm curious -- does his book include the comment sections that accompany the blogs entries?

It's probably just my misunderstanding of the whole blog thingie, but if it's broadcast only, isn't it just a webpage? In my opinion, the value of the blog is the interaction of disjointed individuals much more then the autofellating that sometimes goes on when bloggers pontificate.

Of course I'm probably discounting the value of being published by the establishment world...

True, it is a more flexible medium. But what Coturnix is trying to do is take some of the best writing that was a result of these discussions and try to put them in a more permanent format. Further, I think the threads are still active.
