SA Blog Awards: The End

Alas... none of the skeptics I've been punting have made it to the top two of the South African Blog Awards. Congratulations to the all those who made it, and thank you very much to all of you who supported us!

Next year...


  1. Further confirmation that whoever judges this thing is a complete idiot. Those other blogs are boring, inane, and completely arbitrary. WTF is wonkie? It severely hurt my eyes. Not enough to win once... SA Blog awards judges can go perform auto-coitus.

  2. The main problem, I think, is that it's a "Sci-Tech" category, judged entirely by Tech people. Add that to the fact that tech people dominate SA's internet usage (that's even a bit complicated), and the sci blogs loose out...

    We need them either, (1), to split the sci/tech category (though, I doubt there are enough sci blogs to justify this - maybe a sci-edu category?) or, (2), add at least one sci judge...

  3. Who won in the end? And who would rate as the top 3 blogs science (not tech) blogs in Africa (not South Africa)?

  4. Hi Muza...

    The winners:

    That's really hard for me to say. There are so few active science blogs, and I know a lot of the people involved. (I'm in fact married to one). I'm just too biased to even venture an opinion.
