The 12th Annual Weblog (Bloggies) awards shortlists are out. This year, they have merged the old categories of “Best Science weblog” and “Best Computer or Technology Weblog” into a single category, “Best Science or Technology Weblog“. And the five candidates on the shortlist? Four technology blogs and one rabid anti-science blog.
Not that this award ever had any track record for being able to distinguish science from pseudo-science; the award is legendary for vote-stuffing. But this year it has really stooped to new depths.
