[![Ed_Yong]]My hearty congrats to my fellow Hive Overmind Discover Magazine blogger Ed Yong, [who just won one of the 2010 National Academies Communication Awards]!
These are very prestigious awards, and well-deserved by Ed’s writing, which is both informative and humorous — I’ll let you take a look at the essays he submitted to make up your mind about that… like, oh, say, [this one].
I’m also thrilled to see that science blogging is starting to get its due. A lot of folks dismiss bloggers and blogging, thinking it’s just people describing their dinners. But a lot of writers are legitimate science journalists and scientists themselves — ahem! — and have the chops to cover stories in a deeper and more personal manner. And we can respond more quickly than many of the older media, making science blogs like the ones here at DM the go-to places for people to get their science fix.
So again, my congratulations to Ed!
