I'm so excited to have been nominated for the 3 Quarks Daily Science Prize for the best blog post in science writing! (Thanks, J!) The nomination is for my post on the Evolution of Chloroplasts, which was featured in a recent Carnival of Evolution.
But now I need your help. Public voting is open for only four more days. It closes on June 7 at 11:59 PM (NYC time). If I make it to the top 20, then the editors of 3 Quarks Daily will consider whether it should go into the final round, which is judged by... Richard Dawkins! (Be still my beating heart. Richard Dawkins reading my blog? Gosh!)
So please, go here to vote and pass on the word! Thank you.
