The next round of the Skeptics of Carlos Australian Blog Carnival will be coming out on the 13th December!
This round will be hosted by Thinking Is Real blog!
Send in your entries to email@example.com or zip them into the host for December BEFORE the 11th December – to http://thinkingisreal.blogspot.com/ !!!
And if you have no idea who Carlos is… his story will be featured in the next Skeptic Zone podcast ep, a tale by James Randi…
I’ve just sent out a reminder to all the ‘regulars’ and please, if you’ve never entered before, consider doing now! I’ve had a new idea to help further promote Australian bloggers who are interested in writing about pseudoscience, the paranormal and the intersections between skepticism, society and science.
Of course, Skeptics of Carlos actively encourages all submitters to consider putting in their posts as articles for the Australian Skeptic Journal, for local publications… and now, as entries are open, for The Open Laboratory: The Best Writing on Science Blogs 2008 book!
From ‘Mind The Gap’ on the Nature Network:
“As many of you know, Open Lab, now in its third year, is an anthology highlighting the best science blog entries of the year. Famously, the entire shebang is assembled and published by hardworking volunteers in only a few weeks over Christmas and New Year, and proceeds go to support the annual Science Blogging Conference that occurs every January. The last two years the book was published print-on-demand via Lulu.com (urbanely edited by Bora along with guest editor Reed Cartwright). You can buy the most recent book over at Lulu, which contains a number of specimens from Nature Network denizens, and which was recently reviewed by that well-known rag, Nature.)“
