Jun 21 2011 Published by under Synaptic Misfires

Sci woke up yesterday morning to some truly exciting news!!! I WON the 2011 Top Quark Prize for Science Writing from 3 Quarks Daily! I am so excited!!! I can't use enough exclamation points!!!!!

!!!!!!!

No really. I'm so thrilled to have made it to the finals and sufficiently pleased the judges. :) The post "Serotonin and Sexual Preference: Is it really that simple?" is from the Scientific American Guest Blog and you can check it out there.

And I also wanted to say congratulations to all the finalists, for their awesome work, and to the other three winners, Anne Jefferson of Highly Allocthonous, Sean Carroll of Cosmic Variance, and Ethan Siegel of Starts With a Bang! They all wrote wonderful stuff!!!
