Blog recommendation award baton

Brillante Premio A mixture of baton, blog recommendation, and award, called “Brillante Weblog Premio 2008”, apparently made its way from the Italian or Spanish speaking world into the German blogosphere…

And in spite of the danger that an award that’s spread too far loses its value, I’ll join in and pass it on to other blogs – it reached me from Julia with the words (in my translation):

“Andreas/cimddwc must appear, too, of course, because he superbly takes apart pseudosciences, holds a great music quiz and in general competently deals with subjects I’m interested in myself.”

Thanks a lot!

However, I’ll modify the original instructions

The winner may show the logo on his blog.1 He must link to the person who gave him the award and may pass it on to at least seven more blogs. These blogs must also be linked to and notified about the award.

such that not only I’ll leave the notification to the automatic functions of the blog software (like others already did), but also make mentioning and linking (and passing on) optional – that is, you may just enjoy the award and do nothing yourself.

Basically, I could pass this award baton right back to Julia, for she’d deserve this prize from me, too – following the baton aspect, however, I’ll pick seven other blogs which (hopefully) didn’t have it yet… so these are the blogs I’m giving this award to (in (almost) alphabetical order; only two in English, though, plus one with many photos):

  • Bad Astronomy (redirects to his new home on Discover Magazine’s site) – Phil Plait about the beauty of the universe and science in general and the stupidity of various anti-sciences.
  • Begrenzte Wissenschaft – fulfilling his own description “About culture of science and science in culture: about connections, consequences, misunderstandings and intentional dumbing” (my translation) with flying colors. (But, yeah, it’s German, as you can see…)
  • Facing my life – with a camera, that is, with which Crosa takes numerous fantastic photos.
  • Friendly Atheist – the title should tell what this readable blog is about…
  • StoiBär – political and everyday stuff to the point.
  • Wirbelwebber – you could say it’s anything but a woman’s blog. ;)

And the newcomer prize, if you will, goes to:

So in this spirit, thanks to you (and many more bloggers) for your brilliant posts!

    Oh da sind einige interessante dabei, die ich mir näher angucken sollte (und einige bekannte ;-) ).

    Der Pingback kam übrigens (wie immer) in der englischen Variante an und ist deswegen erstmal im Spam gelandet. Hat das eine besondere Bewandtnis?

    In diesem Sinne ein Prosit auf weitere Esoterikbeiträge :mrgreen:

    Als Standardsprache ist bei mir nunmal Englisch eingestellt, Deutsch kommt nur, wenn es explizit in der URL angegeben ist, in einem Cookie steht oder im Browser als bevorzugte Sprache eingetragen ist. Auf Server trifft keines davon zu… ich bemüh mich in solchen Fällen zwar, zunächst nur deutschen Text zu veröffentlichen, dann bekämen natürlich auch die Server kein Englisch zu sehen, aber wenn ich zu ungeduldig bin und die Server zu lange brauchen und erst nachschauen, wenn ich dann doch den englischen Text hinzugefügt habe, bringt das halt auch nix…

    (Dass das dann im Spam landet, ist natürlich ein anderes Thema…)
