Nick Goes For the Gold

3 Quarks Daily is a group blog covering an astonishing range of topics. I visit its pages at least once a week--am seldom disappointed and often surprised. (I last linked to 3QD re a piece of Sufi mysticism from an unlikely source.) Recently 3QD has been awarding a series of 3 prizes (Top, Strange and Charm) for best blog posts in the fields of politics, science and philosophy. The winner of the 2009 Top Quark Prize for Science can be viewed here.

Today 3QD opened nominations for their Arts and Literature Prize which will be judged by former American Poet Laureate Robert Pinsky. I placed one of my poems The New Sex Robot into the running this morning. Voting on entries (limited to 200 nominations) will take place from March 1 to March 7 and the winners will be announced on March 20. Tell all your friends. Support your favorite blogger.
