First things first: Happy birthday, PZ Myers! (MOAR LOLPZ?)
Next things next: The Borg Overlords are working on a replacement for that “most active/most emailed” thing in the sidebar – one that gives more exposure to good posts from us wee little borgians, and less to gratuitous celebrity pix. The idea is to
exploit engage a select portion of the readership to put favorite posts from across ScienceBlogs into a “best of” feed on del.icio.us.
Each of us in the Borg gets to pick two “Super Readers”, who will be given access to a shared del.icio.us account for posting links. So I’m looking for a couple of people who:
- Are awesome
- Think I am awesome
- Want to exercise their exciting editorial superpowers on ~3 posts/week (not necessarily mine)
If you already use del.icio.us, having two accounts is kind of a pain, but with a little trickery it can work OK. If you don’t already use del.icio.us, you can install a little bookmarklet in your browser’s toolbar that will make the process of posting slick and convenient.
There may or may not be other super club activities and perks in the future – the Powers That Be are keen on experimenting with reader involvement (see also the Page 3.14 fun poll). So… volunteers?
